Great car all around.
Drive Shaft wobble right after we got it. $350.
Serpentine Belt Tensioner $50.
Front door pins wore causing front doors to sag. $85 each.
Drivers power window. $40.
Power Antenna quit working, just left it up, $0.
It is like driving your living room. Soft, quite, smooth. The V8 seems perfectly adequate. It is not fast enough to impress me, but does a good enough job not to disappoint me either. We average 20-21 mpg, which should shame many smaller vehicles that the same or not do much better.
We have carried 6 adults in the car with no trouble. The trunk is massive. We get better gas mileage than my Mom gets in her Chevy Blazer and we have much more room.
The vehicle has been easy to work on, reminds me of cars from the 70s. V8 in the front, axle in the back, lots of room under the hood. I have done almost all the service work myself.
My only complaint is with the handling. Not only does it ride like your driving your living room, it handles like it as well. Don't dare swerve to avoid anything if going over 40mph.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
