Summary:

Great car. Rare parts

Faults:

Passenger power window motor & switch had to be replaced. Found on ebay & junk yard.

Didn't have heat till I flushed the radiator.

General Comments:

I've had the car a couple of months & have no complaints. Smooth roomy ride. The leather interior has a look of class. Very comfortable. Still I feel like I'm in a sports car too.

The car has great pick-up. Easy to get a ticket on it.

The parts are rare. You have to look on Ebay or a junk yard. Not many at the junk yard, which is a good sign.

I love this car so far.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

A money pit

Faults:

Cat-alack converter & fuel filter went bad at 39,000 miles. $400.

Blew a rod at 42,000 miles. $2,300.

Radiator got a hole at 43,000 miles. $500.

Sunroof got stuck and stopped working at 46,000 miles. $450.

Engine blew a different rod then the first, so got a newer engine 55,000 miles. $2,900.

Rear window got stuck and won't roll down at 57,000 miles.

Automatic transmission skips gears sometimes.

Muffler system including catalytic converter fell apart.

Wiring harness fell apart and is too expensive to fix at 67,000 miles.

General Comments:

Car is a money pit, and since I bought it used at 37,000 miles the dealer did not help at all. Although when I would bring it in to see what was wrong with it, they would say "we see these kind of problems happen all the time in a 929".

Car still looks beatiful from the outside and inside appearance, however, looks are deceiving.

"Car still looks beatiful from the outside and inside appearance, however, looks are deceiving."

That's a complete contradiction... it's still a good-looking car. You just bought a lemon, plain and simple. If it bothers you that much you may want to think about getting a new one... it is almost 2008 you know.
