"I have owned this car since it was new. We have never had to replaced any major parts. I believe that if you maintain a car according to schedule it will last you forever. It’s great that the family is getting bigger but we will sure miss this thing."

Pros: "Great mileage, don't feel bad about beating it"

Cons: "Not sure how many miles I can trust her for."

"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)."

Cons: "Replacing rear tail lights"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I have gotten good gas mileage on the highway; 35 miles to the gallon. In the last past two years I started having trouble with the transmission and constantly replacing the rear tail lights. I can saw after six years of driving my car; it was time to have some problems."
