Summary:

A family car with a lot of punch and one of the most reliable vehicles on the road

Faults:

The bonnet will no longer stay up by itself, but I knew this would occur before I bought it.

General Comments:

For a family car, the Vienta has a lot of power about it, at 138kw it was the most powerful car of its time, with the closest rivals being in at 122kw... the Hyundai Sonata for example only had 100kw for a 3L V6. My particular car has had new suspension put in which is more rigid and aids handling at higher speeds, it has also been lowered and has 16 inch mags on it. I'm not sure about if any mods have been done to it, but it feels very quick off the mark, and personally I believe its faster than reviews state to 100km/h in 9.4 seconds which in itself is quite nippy for a family car of its age. Inside the car is very roomy, abit bland, but never the less with the front seat fully back there is still plenty of room for back seat passengers. The boot is also massive. For the driver, controls are well positioned and the dash lay out is good, the drivers seat also comes with good adjustments. I was also suprised for such an old car to have some nice little features in it, when headlights are left on accidently for example they are automatically turned off when opening the drivers door, if any of the 4 doors are left open a light is shown on the dash, and when fuel is low a indicator comes up... minor things but for a car of its age I was suprised. Safety wise it is reasonable, my particular car has ABS brakes. The only negative to this car is the air conditioning, I'm not sure if it has problems, but it still does work for now, but the compressor is quite noisy.

Summary:

Great family sized sedan

Faults:

At 45000 miles, the brakes were replaced. At 50000 miles, the struts were replaced, the front leather seats were reupholstered, and the alternator was replaced. The navy blue paint is slowly fading.

General Comments:

It was my late father's car, so I have had it since 1993. It's great on gas, pretty quick, reliable, and very comfortable. Plus, it's great in the snow. It has 53000 original miles on it, but people swear that it has way more than that on it.

Summary:

Pretty good to average car

Faults:

During Cold Months, The engine would not start. This has happened frequent times but, ceased to exist as recent as 3 years.

When going over bumps or pot holes in the road, always you would hear the "creaking of the Shock Absorbers.

At 40,000 miles, the fuel sensors were not responding correctly, I had to get them replaced.

At 35,000 miles, the car began to pull to the right. I had to realign the steering.

After a month after I bought it, the mirror fastener fell off when I was adjusting the mirror.

General Comments:

It was very reliable other than the event of the car wouldn't start well during cold months.

The car handles pretty well, but, it could be better.

The acceleration is really average.

Summary:

A reliable work horse with fine lines and lineage

Faults:

Very little has gone wrong.

Window fell and needed new rubber belt early on. The Florida heat was at fault.

Door handles have cracked due to rough passengers and the heat.

Trunk is starting to fall down when opened.

General Comments:

This car just runs and runs.

I have had no breakdowns in the 12 years I've owned it.

Quite and smooth ride (probably needing struts soon though).

Love the big 6 cyl ! Still has fast acceleration.

Paint still in great shape with no rust! Even in the Florida rain etc.
