"I bought this car three years ago today and have put almost 80,000 miles on it. I have driven it on interstates, dirt roads, through fields, with goats, dogs, and seed in the back seat. I've replaced the alternator, belt, tires, battery, and powersteering lines, all of which were still original (except tires). Little things have failed along the way, like both rear power windows, there's some rust, some cosmetic damage from putting it in the ditch and from blowing out a tire. The muffler sounds bad, the engine isn't as quiet as a new car by any means, but with the V6 I can pass anything I want to.
Somehow I'm getting better mileage highway than this car was rated for new, and substantially more than the new one is rated for. I consistently get 30 mpg hwy, and have gotten up to 37 on a cross-country road trip.
All in all, I have beaten the heck out of this car and it still runs quite well for what's been done to it (and what hasn't been)."
