Summary:

Good looking comfortable family car

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

Bought this car as a beater to go back and forth to work. It had 295000 kms. on it. I have had this car for a little over a year and have not had 1 problem with it.

I have been reading all the other surveys with the bad reviews of the 2.7, and all I can think is luck of the draw. I have put 20000 kms on this car, and if the motor blew tomorrow, I wouldn't care but I would miss the car.

Great ride, handling, space, quiet, styling, all around good car.

Summary:

A beautifully sculptured car with an exceptional ride

Faults:

Electrical problems from the beginning.

Automatic door locks have been repaired several times.

There is a red light on the top of the dash that flashes when the alarm is on that runs down the battery when the car sits for several weeks at a time.

There have been engine sensors that have gone bad repeatedly, causing the engine to surge.

Poly-carbon plastic headlight covers and hood deflector trim ages rapidly.

Front lower air dam is too low to the ground to clear many driveways.

A cooling system hose blew on the highway requiring over three thousand dollars of repairs just after the extended warranty expired.

General Comments:

The car is a great drive, good performance, exceptionally comfortable for long trips, excellent gas mileage averages 28 mpg.

Tried the new 300C and found this car to be more comfortable both in front and especially the back seats.

Summary:

I like it very much

Faults:

Battery needed to be replaced at 72,000 miles. It was the original.

General Comments:

This car does not like city driving in the wintertime. Going by the onboard computer, that gives 12-14 mpg. The highway is a different story. I hear people bragging about their Civics getting 33mpg, that's what I get. And I'm not sitting with my knees jammed under my chin. We just drove it from Pennsylvania to Arizona. The only preparation I did was to change the oil and the air filter. No problems whatsoever.

I had to spend a few bucks when I bought it - new front tires, the door speakers were blown. But that was factored into the price I paid.

And it sure does go off the line. I like letting the kids in their noisy Hondas get to the other side of the intersection before I even go. It's hilarious to see their expressions (if I was looking *wink wink*) when this Dad-mobile passes them!

Summary:

I like it!

Faults:

Had to replace battery at 69,000 miles. It was the original.

General Comments:

This is a very comfortable car suited primarily to highway cruising. It doesn't particularly like cold weather, judging by the fuel economy. In summer, I get 30-32 mpg running 70 mph. Winter, more like 25. Still not bad considering I hear people bragging about their Hondas getting 28. And that 3.2 has a fair bit of poke off the line! I've had more than one backward baseball hat wearer give me a surprised look. The paint on the windshield trim is peeling off now. I haven't yet decided if I will sand off the rest and leave it a matte aluminum finish or continue on and repaint it with spray paint.

Previous carJeep Comanche

Summary:

A good reliable sedan, but electrical could use improvement

Faults:

Door Solenoid on left Passenger and Driver have become defective.

Transmission Speed Sensor failed.

Headlights yellowed and gaskets slipped.

Windsheild wipers inconsistent in cold weather.

General Comments:

Generally, this has been a good and faithful car since I bought it new. The 3.2 engine has been strong and have never had a problem with it. Regular maintenance on it.

The transmission seems to be slipping a bit, but I've now got 145K worth of miles on it.

The rotors on the front brakes seem to wear a bit fast though.

The door solenoids could use improvement. The driver's side passenger failed about a year ago and I had it replaced. Now the one in the driver's door is buzzing. Also, the auto down switch for the driver's door window doesn't work any longer.
