"Bought the car used for my wife and right after we got it we had to replace the fuel pump in the gas tank. That has been 4 years ago and other than replacing tires and changing the oil I have had to do nothing to this car. It is driven lots of highway miles ( 250 miles EVERY weekend for her to come home) plus all week it is driven short hops to and from work (<10 miles) All in all it has been a very reliable car. The AC will freeze you out and it rides smooth on a long trip so it is a comfortable vacation car."

"I've had this car for 7 years, haven't had to fix a ton on it but it has its issues now. Odometer lights burnt out, blinkers keep going out, window not staying up, gas gage doesn't work, back middle seat belt doesn't work and now the ball joints are going. All started within the last year so besides that it hasn't had many issues. I'm overall satisfied, basic interior could be better, comfy & safe."

"I've owned this vehicle for 4 years. It's reliable and a comfortable ride, easy maneuverability, gets good gas mileage. My only complaints are the fuel gauge fluctuates wildly so the only levels I am sure of are full and nearly empty(the bell and light come on). My second complaint is the headlights go out without warning while driving and the indicator lights for P,R,N,D, etc. does not come on at all. Thankfully I don't do any night driving, and I take my time when putting in gear to feel the changes."
