Love this car...It has been great since the moment I drove it brand new off the lot. The ride is smooth and comfortable. Hate riding and driving other vehicles because in comparison the ride is bumpy and rough. We have never had any mechanical problems. Simple routine service (oil/lube) has been a breeze. The breaking ability is superb. Its performance has been outstanding. Even now, at 11 years of age it is still a delightful car even in comparsion to brand new cars.
Purchased at 121000 miles. Repairs over the next four years included a complete AC system, a fuel pump, A valve job, complete brake sets all around, 4 tires, an exterior passenger side door handle and a headliner installed. The door locks all failed at the same time and heve yet to be repaired. The car is now in super drivable condition, looks great, has no oil leaks anywhere, burns a quart of oil every 2000 miles, and is delight to drive on the highway,and no slouch in town either. Gas is 23 on the road and 16.5 in town. Average since purchase 19.9.
21 mpg. Quiet! So quiet. 90 mph drives like 60 mph. Huge trunk. Perfect comfort. The front seats adjust in innumerable variations. Around town and trips, comfort. I can not remember ANY big work until 2005. (Earlier, we had to replace the front light..a stone. In 2005 we put in a new transmission.) All the car needs is oil changed, fluids, and new tires. Now it is 15 years old and still excellent. I think cars have personalities in a positive or negative vein based on their year. 1991 was a great year for the Sovereign.
