If you want comfort and ultra reliability, with some performance, this is it
Changed Shocks, heavy car, go with a stiff suspension. I went stiff, works fine, but this car drives well, smooth, but it's heavy, I will go with racing shocks next time.
Lousy mileage, have done tune ups. Gets 16-17 no matter what I do. On a freeway, doing 55 it might get 20 gph.
Bose cassette player broke. $175 to fix. Want to go with a CD player, too expensive. You have to pull out the whole system given the special amps that BOSE uses. Sounds nice, but it's starting to make noises, amps acting up.
Takes a while to warm up, don't plan on using the heater for 15 minutes on cold days.
Speedo goes to 85, it would be nice to have the digital tack, and the 350 engine, but for another 7k, not worth it.
Compass doesn't really work right.
Solid car, well built. A driver's car. 3 tickets before I knew it, basically going 70ish when it felt like 55mph.
If taken care off, very reliable, comfortable.
Runs cool, AC blows hard and cold. Acceleration on a 5.0 is anemic, but it will get there and stay there with no problem.
Looks nice, but I don't really like the shrouded rear tire, prefer the non boat look.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
