The car has a very good engine, but everything else is fair to poor
I bought the car with 38k miles, and the transmission had just been replaced by the previous owner.
I paid $15700 in Aug. of 1997.
The car was nearly problem free until 150k miles.
Since then I have replaced the AC compressor twice, and converted it to 134.
The CV joints 4 times. Major weak point of the car.
Rear wiper quit at 160k.
Power steering went out at 182k.
Sliding door on RH side does not open/close lock/unlock well.
Serpentine belt in engine compartment comes off easily if you hit a big puddle of water or a small snow bank, and is a pain to get back on!
Mileage averages 21MPG.
Transmission has been progressively been consuming more oil since 250K. Now up to 1 qt of ATF+4 at every fueling.
Doors began to wear out (hinges and latches) at 250k as well as the passenger power window motor.
Driver side is hot and passenger side is too cool in summer and winter.
Spark plugs are impossible to change yourself.
Radio lights are dead.
This car is comfortable to drive on long trips.
Has a nice stereo... make that had a nice stereo... now the radio works, but nothing will light up to tell you what you are doing.
Very reliable engine. Still uses no oil after 327k miles.
Has always been a good starting car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
