"We have owned this car for about a year. It was a single owner, well maintained car with low mileage for the year. On the plus side the car rides and handles well for a big car, gets very good fuel mileage on the highway and is whisper quiet at highway speeds. On the negative side I have spent the past several weeks fixing the car. So far I have replaced the IAC motor, MAF sensor, transmission and all four rotors and pads. At this point I spent more on repairs than I spent on the car and told my wife that one more failure and it gets traded for a Ford."
Cons: "Money pit... MONEY PIT..... a deep MONEY PIT..."

"My GF purchased this used from a reputable dealer - with low miles in 2006.... Went there often for every little routine maintenance and some expensive unexpected repairs. She still loved it. Then drove it to MD and used it here for a couple of years. But then the big buck repairs started coming in often... plus sensors went crazy.
She stopped loving it when she started paying out more than the car was worth. Was thrilled to dump it .... er..trade it in."
"Bought at 42,000 miles, now up to 132,000 in 3 years. NO - repeat - NO engine problems, possibly the best engine in a car I have ever owned.
Had to fully replace trans, my fault, I am hard on cars. Trans replaced at 52,000 miles, NO problems since.
Can get 25 mpg on highway and "not much stopping" travel. Just plain a great used car to buy.
It's all about the engine!"
"Car is junk, I got it used 3rd owner, car has horrible electrical issues, anything with a sensor malfunctions on a daily basis. Service Traction light on starter burned up, abs lights on engine light on then the next day, nothing will be on. Doors are supposed to lock when tranny engaged sometimes they do, sometimes they don't rear defogger doesn't work A/C works sporadically. Like I said horrible electrical issues. Electrical is not cheap to fix either!"
Cons: "sun burned upholstery due to not being garaged"

"Very reliable vehicle for the 13 yrs I have owned it. Oxidized paint exterior also leather seats discolered due to the Florida sun and not having a garage or carprt. Heated seats are great in cooler weather even in Florida. Car was purchased in Canada and is in KL. 57000 clicks equals 37 to 38ooo miles."
