Drove this car over 134,000 miles and
have enjoyed the reliability and
driving features in every aspect.
Other than two flats this car has had
only regular maintenance. Replaced
belts and water pump at 105,000 miles
and oxygen sensors just before that.
Nothing else has been done except
change oil about every 5,000 miles and
put in gas. On fourth set of tires and
lots of tread left on them. Several
miles that do not show on speedometer
were towed miles behind motor home.
Especially liked the cruise controls.
The cancel button is between the Set
and Resume buttons which makes for a
completely one-handed operation. The
back seat completely lets down and
with the large trunk is almost like a
pickup in hauling ability. Hauls a lot
Overall a great car. Intetior quality
is outstanding, and it handles pretty
soundly. The engine is quiet, but road
noise on the highway is pronounced. The
suspension isn't very good on cracked
or bumpy pavement, but not as bad as
many cars in the class. The seats in
front are comfortable, but the rear
seats aren't on long trips. Fuel
economy is very respectable. No major
problems as of yet.
Interior fit-and-finish, generous leg
room, roomy trunk, excellent
Reduce road noice, improve suspension,
make rear seats more comfortable.
Where do I start? I bought the car
with 34K miles on it. THANK GOD I
bought a 100K mile warranty! I bought
the car b/c I'm in outside sales and
drive a lot and need a reliable car.
I've had numerous recalls, new
transmission at 95K miles, new power
steering pump, altanator, cateletic
converter, and the list goes on. I'm
car shopping now b/c I CANNOT spend
anymore money or camp out at the
dealership. DO NOT buy one without a
100K mile warranty to help with repairs.
Interior design, very comfortable with
a sporty feel to it.
