Bought new in 2003, still going with 172,000 miles.
Comfortable and great handling car but it comes at the price of expensive, ongoing maintenance.
The check engine light has been on for at least 1/2 its life and I just ignore it.
Sometimes it goes off, sometimes it doesn't.
Have had to deal with it every 2 years to pass state emissions though.
Dash lights stopped working at 107k miles and had a wire meltdown.
Required a new wire harness ($3,500) so I just use a clip on book light to illuminate the dash at night.
If it weren't for the expensive and ongoing need for repairs, I'd highly recommend this car, but can't.
Handling and comfortable ride.
Upscale cabin materials (when new), but fall apart over time.
Better build quality overall (electrical, body and engine)
