Summary:

Luxury and handling bargain

Faults:

No problems of any kind.

General Comments:

This has good power, great handling, most comfortable car I've ever owned, and loaded with flawlessly working accessories. The finish is excellent, the interior is roomy. We were surprised that this car is better than the new ones we looked at. It was bought off the street on a whim as a 'school' car. The quality and amount of features on this car, the surprising mpg make this the best passenger car we've ever owned.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

Comfortable riding car

Faults:

The day after I got it home from the dealership, the transmission went out (with only 47,000 miles). After battling with the dealer (it was still under warranty as well) I got the car back a month later with a brand new tranny. They tried putting a rebuilt one in it instead, but the guy installing it cracked the casing when he torqued one of the nuts too tight, and it broke when they test drove it. They gave up then and just put a brand new one in it.

The electrical system (power windows) had some wiring problems, as well as the gas gauge. The shocks and struts were shot as well.

General Comments:

It was a very comfortable and easy driving car though, extremely wonderful on vacations and it got fairly good gas mileage.

The inside had tons of room, while the outside wasn't very large, which made it easy to maneuver. The trunk was massive.

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

The tranny problems is a factory defect that all CDP's had for a few years. I just put the third one in my car, this one is very well redesigned and I expect 75,000 or miles of this one. Other than that my 5Th has been the best land yacht I've owned. It has 151,000 miles on it now. virtually trouble free and fun to drive.
