Leased this car in 1990 when no one had ever heard of a "Leex-is".
Three years later I bought out the lease and never looked back.
Today it has over 264,000 miles on it and the engine is still as strong as ever.
In 24 years I may have put 4K in non-scheduled repairs in this car.
Mileage averaged 22 mpg combined.
its 20 years old & still going strong! but be prepared......

This is my first car I got it at about 205xxx the best buy I ever made!
This car is powerful and the handling is so smooth that cars half its age cant compare. VERY reliable it has never broken down on me and I drive A LOT I feel totally safe in this car. Its so quite you can barely tell its on. BUT be prepared the cost of maintenance is high a regular tuneup will run you about $300 a full is approx $600. the water pump and timing belt which needs to be changed every 90k was $1200
and it takes PREMIUM GAS ONLY. But thats a small price to pay for the piece of mind you get knowing you have such a reliable ride. I recommend this car to everyone
First year of release, now coming up on 20 years and this vehicle is still a GREAT car. We have 150,000 miles and put our first big expense into the car (AC repair @ $1000). This has been the most reliable car we've ever owned. Car is 17+ years old and still looks like it rolled off the showroom floor. No rust, no dings, no scratches, no cuts. I've pushed my wife to buy a newer car and she pushes back everytime. She loves this car.
