I have one payment to make on my car and 4 months ago i put a new transmission in it because it of course went out well i am having very bad problems with the transmission again,my keys also lock in the ignition and my RPM revs up by its self...it turns out that the car has electrical problems and the computer in it is having trouble communicating with things in it to make them work properly so i don't know what i have to do yet,it may just be a few electrical wires or the whole electrical system but it is cousing the transmissions to burn up
The look and body of it,when stiff isnt going wrong with it, it runs great,i have also grown very attached to it and if it cost me $2,000 to fix it so be it,I will own it free in clear in 1 week
i say go ahead and have your electrical system checked out,i could have saved a lot of money if that would have had that done in the first place and i wouldn't be on the verge of having to replace my second transmission
i loved this car. the only problem we had was the transmission went at about 130K. but this is a great car. it's big enough for a family of 4. it's pretty quick. and it's fun to drive. our's got totaled last year cause some idiot hit it, and i still miss it.
Stereo controls on the steering wheel. Fast and quick around corners.
This was one of my best purchases. I have had this vehicle for close to 10 years and its still immaculate. On the highway keeping my foot out of the injectors I have gotten as much as 36mpg around town I average 23 to 24mpg. I really enjoy the car the ride is great for what it is, noise level is low and I absolutely love the HUD. When power is needed its here in a heartbeat. I have had no major mechanical issues. Most issues presented themselves during warranty period and were corrected. Only the interior carpeting was cheap crap and had to be replaced about a uear ago. This was a little expesive but worth every penny. This car is in as good a shape as it was coming of the showroom floor.

I would definitely go with the 3.8 L engine. It is reliable except that the intake WILL go after 150,000 miles. Other than that, it is a reliable car. Mine has 192,000 miles and is only now beginning to struggle.
Bought the vehicle with 50K, in late 2005. The first week I owned it, it left me stranded on the side of the road twice. Dealer was very good about fixing it. It was the fuel pump. It went out twice before 60K. I have had to replace all 4 wheel bearings, and brakes 3 times. Front end is constantly shuddering, no matter how many alignments you have done. Has a good deal of power, and fuel economy isn't bad @ an average 22 mpg. I know have 111K on this car, and my wife wrecked it yesterday. They will surely total it, and I will be sad to see it go. Also, i just got a recall notice in the mail stating that oil can leak onto the exhaust manifold and cause the car to catch fire.

Reliability, although I drove about 45K trouble free miles w/ the old girl. Repairs are EXPENSIVE, more than normal cars
