Strange situation where power locks don't work while using the rear defroster.
GREAT highway cruiser. Seats and ride are as comfortable as can be. GM's 3800 gives plenty of power in reserve for passing and surprising takeoffs. It also makes it capable of 30mpg highway (though only about 20mpg/city).
The most reliable car I've ever owned. Even with those issues listed above, the car kept running through all of them. Just kept trying.
The car is also VERY spacious inside, with ample room for real people in front AND back. Comfort for 4 easy in a long trip. HUGE trunk. Stock stereo sounds quite good, and is easy to replace.
Styling is pretty conservative, not much to show off.
Handling however, is quite good for such a large car. Fully independent suspension and dynamic steering make it feel like driving a midsize.
Overall, very pleased.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
