It has cost me a good bit of money, but I love it to death!
The upper and lower hinges on my driver side door had to be replaced at 120,000 miles (the door wouldn't shut it would hit the car siding)
The airbags/airshocks in the rear blew on both sides at 121,000.
The compressor that pumps up the airbags blew at 126,000.
The headliner was starting to fall down when I bought it, so I got a new headliner.
The paint on my bumpers is fading and peeling off badly.
The blower for the air/heat went out at 140,000.
All four power windows went out by 125,000. Even after getting the back right side fixed it blew again.
It eats up oil.. i usually have to put in oil 2000 miles after my oil change.
Leather seats are looking a little rough.
The shifter messed up at 144,000 miles, wouldn't go into park and it was real hard to get it into reverse and drive. It was just a loose screw.
This car is extremely comfortable and rides exceptionally smooth!
It has decent pick up and go for such a big car.
But I do wish it was a little bit more powerful.
Even though a lot has gone wrong with my car, I still love it.
Most of the things that have went wrong had nothing to do with the engine.
I've had very little engine related problems, it runs so great!
This is the best car I've ever owned. My last car was a 2003 Cheverlet Lumina, and it can't even begin to touch this car.
It is costly though. I bought it for only $1800, and I've put probably $5000 into it. It's definitely worth it though, most of the money I put into it was for cosmetic items, or things I wanted to increase my enjoyment (speakers, stereo, etc).
I will keep this car forever!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
