An American car with Japanese reliability
Water pump, serpentine belt, belt tensioner all blew at 150k miles. Easy DIY project, cheap fix.
Replaced three coil packs since acquiring car.
Broken engine-mount 140k miles.
Driver door handle/power locks completely failed at 180000 miles.
Various electrical problems... e.g. power windows.
Awesome. I had this car for years and it obviously incurred some mechanical breakdown, but nothing major. I had the 3.1 liter Eurosport and the acceleration and handling were exceptional for a car of this age. It was hard to believe this was a six cylinder engine given the amount of cargo I've hauled at one time. This car has been sold to a friend and it still starts without hesitation and serves well as a cargo/business vehicle. Cabin leaves a bit to be desired, but really... what can you expect for a car that's 16 years old? Awesome value, fantastic performance.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
