I replaced tires and brakes.
Ignition coil burnt out at 52,000 miles ($41)
Noticed transmission "shudder" at 45,000 miles. I Had transmission shop put in Mercon V with a fluid additive.
Rear axle seal leaking, but I haven't fixed it.
This car is built like a tank.
The "smallish" V8 likes to be revved for optimum power. Thus, initial acceleration from a stop is sluggish. However, passing power on the highway is unbelievable. This thing is a freeway missle.
This car handles like a heavy sports car and can take curves aggressively and at high speeds.
Seats are unbelievably comfortable.
Car is very quiet on the inside with nary any rattles or squeaks.
Uses a little more gas than I would like in traffic. I attribute this to the slightly higher gearing of the police version of the car. (I'm getting 15mpg city and 21mpg highway).
Road bumps are transmitted to the cabin more than you'd think the 4000lb body should allow.
The rear seat is disappointingly small.
People always ask me why I drive "an old man's car" (hehe, little do they know about the wolf in sheep's clothing).
This car is the ultimate road trip car.
When I compare this car to my friend's BMW 325is, it beats it in every "performance" category. It is more comfortable, smoother, quieter, faster, and handles better. Enough said.
