"This is by FAR the most reliable car I have ever had. I keep the regular maintenance schedule, and the only thing I have had to replace is tires and battery. And the maintenance is reasonably priced (unlike the German cars). Very comfortable car and smooth ride."

great car!

Pros: "very reliable, and extremely comfortable"

Cons: "poor around town fuel economy -typically 17-20 MP"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I purchased this car with 35000 miles and I've never had a problem-ever! Its comfortable, reliable, and of good quality. More of a cruising car rather than the type of performance you might expect from a German made car. That's fine for me. My next car is likely to be a Lexus, too."

Pros: "Ride, Quiet, Solid, Trunk Size, Reliable"

Cons: "Dull driver, Front seats not great, numb steering"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 5

"Have owned the car 3 trouble free years, apart from A/C compressor service. It is a powder puff that serenely glides over bumps and road imperfections. It is quiet inside and the hardware, switchgear and interior materials are top quality. Back seat is roomy and very comfortable. Trunk is large. The Silver paint finish and clearcoat are extremely durable, still shining after 13 years (9 years in a garage and 4 years outdoors). Now the downsides; it's unexciting to drive, the power steering is numb and handling is a bit ponderous. It is a dull driver on the highway, perhaps dangerously so (Zzzz). The front seats are soft and lower back support is surprisingly lacking. The back hurts after a few hours. The steering wheel tilts, but doesn't telescope so it's a little hard to get comfortable in relation to the wheel and pedals. Overall, it's bullet proof reliable but dull."
