I bought this car new and it has performed flawlessly over the past 10+ years. Still tight with no rattles. Quiet, luxury ride with plenty of power, particularly when you put the electronically controlled transmission into its "power" mode. Outstanding build quality with no mechanical problems other than recent replacement of left CV boot (couples the transmission with the left front wheel). The only reason I'm replacing this car now is to get side and head curtain air bags.
Automatic climate control. Quiet smooth ride. Great acceleration.
No seat heaters available when I bought mine - the only feature I wish I had.
I just bought a 1995 XLS from my dad who bought it new and it still runs like a dream. After we replaced the transmission it got right back up to the original speed and power. That is the only part that we have replaced in it.
The automatic AC heat control, it helps to keep you on the road and not all over the place.
NEW SUSPENSION it is sooooo rocky and I'm replacing it with a performance suspension but I love it and its a quick lil car even after 10 years.
I change my oil 2-3 times each year. I use the a/c when I want. In ATL traffic, I have a 27 mile commute (54 round trip) which requires a lot of stop/go/sit in traffic. With all of this I am still averaging 27 - 29 miles per gallon on regular unleaded gas. Highway miles have yielded as high as 32 miles per gallon with cruise control engaged. My husband is 6'4", I'm 5'2" and the car is quite comfortable for both of us on all types of trips. The car is very quiet inside & out. I hope my car runs another 500000 miles! I'm afraid I'll never find another car with the comfort, reliability, mileage, and looks for a comparable price to what I paid in 1995. I love my car!!!
Comfort, size, sunroof, quiet cabin, trunk size, design of dash/instrument panel, cup holder placement, power seats, I love them all!
Paint on side mirrors & around door handles has chipped over time, even when garaged & waxed. I have not been happy with the overall paint job on the hood & more "exposed surfaces" though the doors still reflect a deep black shine.
