Just bought it a few weeks ago, but I
bought it with 72000 miles in 2002, and
have no problems with noise, its has
great get up and go, and the stereo
system is good too, but I'm looking
forward to a CD player. A great car,
and plenty of room!
I have owned a gold 94 SSEi supercharged for 5 yrs, I just wrecked it and caved in the entire left side [totaled]... I LOVED this car....it was my wife's daily driver and never gave less than 35mpg, as long as you drove like you had sense and didn't open it up, BUT when I did open it up WOW I took that car to 169mph [I turned off the 155mph governor] and it didn't even thibk twice about it, it felt solid and connected to the road even at that speed. the seats are so comfortable that my wife is making me install them in her 01 aztek I bought to replace it. the car gave us relatively few probs I will certainly miss her.
This is the most wonderful sedan that I have ever had. It has been nearly trouble free even though it is expected to move me safely through Alaska's arctic winters. It rides very comfortably over Alaska's less than perfect roads. Has great trunk space. Head and leg room is wonderful. Normally gets 20 to 22 mpg unless I'm traveling in light, open road traffic at 80+ mph, in which case the mileage go up over 30 mpg.
This is one fine automobile. Four months after buying took it for quick boot from Canada to Cape Hatteras N.C. with power to spare and comfort matched only by higher end cars this trip was a blast. This car gives new meaning to the phrase "super charged"!! Although the gas mileage is not great, the money I saved not having to do any repairs makes up for it. This vehicle just keeps going and is "ever-ready".
It is a very big/ safe feeling in the car. but i swear a full tank of gas would go in like half a day. it eats it up, The blind spots are annoying. But pretty comfortable, i've fallen asleep in it. but overall i'm not sure if id suggest it unless you are planning to take residence in it
