Other than the few downsides I had listed above, this car is great! Has a lot more power than our older 240, and is good on gas for a 6 cylinder.
Passenger compartment is roomy, the seats have variable memory for different drivers, leather throughout, power everything.
The Bose stereo is fantastic. Sound quality is great, and the stereo comes as a radio/cassette/CD player.
Dummy lights in the dash are actually useful, letting you know if your coolant is low, when to service your vehicle, etc.
Trunk space is enormous. Great for long trips.
Seating for five is not impossible, and is even comfortable for three adults in the back seat with the front seats all the way back.
The automatic seats fully recline in the front, making a snooze on a long trip by a front seat passenger possible.
On the downside, for those out there that are smokers, the ashtray in this car is very small and in a very poor location, right behind the gear shift. You cannot remove the ashtray while the car is in "park".
The center rear seat back pulls down and has a storage compartment inside, and it is great for kids who want somewhere to put down a book.
