Summary:

Worth what I bought it for, but the repairs are too costly

Faults:

The appearance of my car is bad. I shouldn't have bought it, but I really needed a vehicle.

I don't know exactly every repair on it, but I've had a few done since September 2003.

I had to replace the starter at about 175,000 miles. I believe the cost was 50 dollars or so, my father paid for it.

The fuel pump went right before the started. I swear my gas gage isn't correct either. Fuel pump costs about $300.

The back of the drivers seat broke, but I have not had it replaced yet.

The air conditioning never worked.

The automatic windows fell off track and the mounts busted at about 200,000 miles.

The rotor (s) is/are finally starting to go, started a couple weeks ago.

The brakes are finally starting to go also.

The headliner started to come off at about 180,000 miles. It would take about $200 to get it done, I don't have the money.

Paint is rusting and chipping. Started before I bought it.

General Comments:

I bought this car from my mother, who had bought it off her nephew. He beat the life out of this car.

The back bumper and reinforcement has been ripped off and the bumper is just held up by wire clothes hangers.

The front fender and part of the front bumper is cracked to bits and pieces and taped together with duct tape.

There was a sunroof in it, but the window busted.

It's not the best looking car, but it's not the worst either. It still rides very nice. But the appearance is horrible.

I only bought this car for $600, but in the end about $1300. I don't remember all the exact costs.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Summary:

A good performer overall

Faults:

The windshield cracked for no apparent reason.

The front driver's side wheel bearing went out with roughly 135,000 miles.

The Infinity stereo quit working around 150,000 miles.

A temperature sensor needed replacing at 130,000 miles. This part was cheap in price.

General Comments:

This car has excellent power and decent gas mileage. I got 23-29 miles per gallon.

This engine had oil and filter changes every 3,000 miles and didn't burn any oil.

All of the power equipment still work from the seats to the windows.

The factory paint is in great shape with the exception of a small patch of surface rust on the trunk.

This car didn't ride as comfortably as I expected.

The wide 60 tires made for slow travel in snow and ice. Traction control did help some.

I bought this car with a lot of miles on it and some repairs were to be expected.

I just traded this car in and I will miss it!

I really love this car. it has all the bells and whistles, with a great sound system to top it. drives very well and with a v6 engine it has a little extra oomph for it's size.

Many electrical related problems, for example the horn will blow at 3am or while driving the car.

The locks open and close on their own.

The trunk opens on its own.

And the brakes will ocassionally engage on their own.

General Comments:

This car is fast for a big car and handles nice, but I would have to rate the car poor overall.

Summary:

For a used car, it is OK

Faults:

The automatic locks and trunk started popping open on their own every two hours.

The horn periodically goes off by itself in quick spurts in traffic. It is not a fun experience.

General Comments:

This car runs extremely well considering the age I purchased it. It is actually more nimble than newer cars.

Very spacious and comfortable for both driver and passengers. Very smooth drive.

But, there is definitely something wrong with the electrical systems. I have a collection of all the fuses and relays I had to pull to get some of the features to stop working on their own. If I bought it new, I would have asked for my money back.
