Air Conditioner needed new seals and to be replaced.
The front two windows are getting harder and harder to wind up, we tried to fix the problem ourselves, but not much improvement.
Oil becomes brown very quickly and will need a regular flush out, also the same with the transmission fluid.
The transmission would slip a gear in the cold, but the transmission flushes has seemed to repair this problem.
The front of the headlights seem to have decayed and gone a brown colour which has affected their effectiveness considerably, might need a new assembly or new covers.
Exhaust has rusted out, but that's to be expected.
For a station wagon, this car has some nice torque in the higher revs and has been able to pull some fun drags on the highway.
0 to 100 in approx 9 seconds with 3 ppl and a full boot, not too bad for stock.
Top speed the car is capable of - in excess of 200 I would guess maybe 230, I've only done 190 in it up in the NT, but it is definitely capable of going further.
The suspension at the rear is quite shocking, this is the major down point of the car as it feels extremely unsafe at high speed and there is too much chassis twist as you drive through the hills.
The electronics I have to say has been extremely reliable to me with not even 1 light bulb going out on me as yet.
The stock pioneer speakers are still going and sound pretty nice with the sansui deck I have installed, gives quite good bass and midrange.
Seats are extremely comfortable and there is easily enough room to fit 5 adults inside.
All in all not a bad family car, but there are some major design flaws that hold the car back from being a great car which I feel could have been avoided.
Btw if ur looking for a chick magnet, do not buy this car as they will refer to it as a big ugly cockroach, : (
