Best car I've ever owned
Replaced transmission at 102,000 miles, have to love teenage sons and racing mom's car.
Heater controls went out twice, $35.00 fix each time with replacements from the junk yard. Heat would come on randomly and not shut off. Not a big issue in winter, but happened in summer both times.
Power antenna stopped working around 100,000 miles, easy inexpensive fix.
At 180,000 miles, replaced steering knuckle on driver's side.
Other than the transmission, have had no major problems with this car. Just regular maintenance issues.
Paint is just now starting to show signs of oxidation. Will be replacing door seals this spring as they are starting to break apart. Interior is also starting to show signs of her age, leather seats are starting to have little cracks.
Bought this car used in 2004, only paid $3500.00 and it was the best investment I've ever made. Even when the new cars in the drive won't start... she will.
Everything still works on her. Replaced stereo, not because it didn't work, but just to have a CD player.
The car handles great in snow and has plenty of power. Still has great gas mileage for a V6.
Seats are comfortable for long trips, and she offers plenty of leg room, even in the back seat. Trunk is huge. Only wish they had provided access from the back seat.
Of the eight cars I've purchased, this is the only one I purchased used, and it has been the best for performance, comfort, and value.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
