"We bought this car new from a dealer in Arizona in 1998 with just a few miles on it. Had wood grain kit and rear spoiler installed and also had grille replaced with a chrome one from an LS because my wife did not like the color matched grille. This car is loaded and we love it still after 18 years. I drive it daily to work. Lots of compliments. Had to put new paint on it because the paint let loose at about 100,000 miles. Looks new again. Best car we have ever owned. It likes to eat front rotors though. Replaced a/c at 140,000. Meticulously maintained and runs strong. Had offers to buy it but have turned them all down. Small things have had to be replaced but all in all it has been a gem."

"I am a single senior lady. I purchased this car new and have been extremely happy with it. It has always been garaged, and maintained as per manual suggested. I have never had an accident and have been the only driver. The interior looks brand new."

"This was not my first choice of cars, but through circumstances beyond my control, i had to leave the lot with a car that day. i bought it in May of 2007, and in hind site, now see that i couldn't have done better. NO mechanical breakdowns. odometer quit working but i'm sure it's close to 250k. replaced A/C Comp., Intake Manifold Gasket,, Water Pump, Ambient Temp Sensor & Mass Air Sensor, Multi-Function Turn Signal Arm. this is over the 8 years I have owned the car. most from Pull-A- Part. Not bad for a 15 year old car."

"Second owner, bought it with 99000 miles on it, nothing but tires and battery, all else in good shape. Nice ride, good mileage (28), lots of room and comfort. this is the second one I have owned, the first went 320000 then they both had same low coolant issue. What can you expect after that many miles. Worth every penny I paid for them. wouldnt think twice about getting another. Great car."

"The car is a solid ride...great suspension system, V-6 engine gets the car up and in freeway traffic easily. The interior is very comfortable with leather seats and ample space for five people. The trunk is huge so great for traveling. The sound system has a CD player (and a tape deck for those still using!) and terrific speakers for great music quality."
