"This is by far the most comfortable ride I have ever had. Many trips to & from TN, Lots of Soccer Games all over the state of Florida. Very functional as a family vehicle (I have 4 grandchildren) as well as a Sturdy Vehicle. (We hauled lots of lumber and other home improvement products). Unfortunately, she is on her final leg. Years of getting our family from point A to B and back again have finally taken its toll. I would love to find another "Granny Wagon" in excellent condition for a fair price. Funny thing is that I didn't want this vehicle. I was in desperate need of a vehicle and my pastor's mom had this for sale and I could make payments. I am SO GLAD I didn't let my stubbornness win this one. I have never been so pleased with a car. Great Reliable and Great Comfortable Seating and ride."
Pros: "Reliable, parts are cheap, quite, good gas mileage"

"Dependable utilitarian car provided you maintain it. I have spent over $2300 in parts alone over the past 2 years. Now I am satisfied it will continue to be reliable for another 5 years. Secret to any dependable auto is maintenance. Have used synthetic motor oil and serviced the transmission with synthetic ATF better than Ford spec. NO engine or transmission problems. A/C is the coldest of any car I've owned any yet it uses 134a Freon!"
Cons: "Stalls occasionally, 3 seats w/only lap belt"

"This car is a great deal for its price. It gets a surprising 26 highway mpg. It comes with remote lock/unlock, front and rear spray wash, 7 seats (2 are rear facing, 4 have shoulder belts), automatic window sliding for the whole car, and and power steering. This car has worked pretty well for me, but mine only has 92,000 miles. It does occasionally stall when parked, but overall for a 20 year old car that you can get for under $2000, you should consider it if money is tight."
