Safe and comfortable tank for the highway!
Minor wear-and-tear; the car was very well maintained before I bought it.
I bought this car to use as a daily highway commuter vehicle, and so far, have been quite impressed.
The seats are comfortable, the structure is solid, and the car rides and handles nicely.
I'm aware these cars need regular maintenance in order to be trouble-free. The 10-valve, 5-cylinder engine gives the car decent pickup, and feels like it car withstand a lot of hard use.
Cruising the highway at well over the legal limit is this car's forte; it feels effortless. In accelerating, it sounds great, too!
I've only used high-octane fuel, and so far the mileage is good (about 10L/100K). I'm sure the car will need work down the road (CV joints are wearing, and the rear strut mount is rattling), but for the time being, I'm really enjoying it.
The usual 850 problems have all been experienced and rectified in this car (A/C evaporator, leaky rear main seal, burnt out light bulbs, broken odometer etc.)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
