Right after I bought it at 120,000 miles, the problems were detected as follows:
-Smog air pump clutch went bad, made a noise. Ended up removing the smog air pump.
122,000 miles - Recharged air conditioning refrigerant.
122,000 miles - passenger's side electric seat controller broke. Replaced the controller.
124,000 miles- Found out that water pump is leaking & needs to be replaced.
This car is more fun & comfortable to drive, compared to most full size japanese sedan.
Handling is excellent & make you feel good when driving it.
2.6 engine is quite responsive, enough acceleration when passing.
The interior made from the first class materials & the head rest is one of the best made, very comfortable.
I like this car better than the mercedes E class from the same year, since the size is more compact without loosing the luxury of mercedes.
Fuel Economy: It is still reasonable for having an average of 19-25 MPG (city/highway)
However, if you are now looking for this car, PLEASE PAY ATTENTION!!!
Buy from someone who takes care of it or otherwise, don't buy this car!
Look at all the history & service records.
Repair cost & parts are really expensive compared to most Japanese cars. But, it's worth when you buy the good one!
