Ahead of its time and very reliable
One and only problem with the car was an oxygen sensor.
I love this car. It performs great, very comfortable on the highway for those long trips.
This car was one of the most reliable cars I have ever owned. I have had an Acura Integra, which was a money pit, a Jeep Grand Cherokee that still needs parts, and a Saab, which is a great car, other than the cost to maintain.
Like I said, the only things this car ever needed was the oxygen sensor. Yeah I could not keep up with buying new tires and replacing brake pads for this car, but that's because I never gave this car a break. It had plenty of power and I used it all.
There was only one "hiccup" with this car, which was when it died on me when I was driving, but it never happened again, so I dismiss that as a problem.
Because this was the front wheel drive version and not the AWD, driving this car in the snow with OK tires was like ice skating on the roads.
And yeah the 19 gallon tank did not get me very far because of the gas mileage, but I always got there very quickly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
