"Bought new in July 1996. Our daily driver and long-distance traveler until wee started traveling in our Porsche Cayman. It has been a great car. Start decision to get. Glad we got the big V-8 engine. Get reasonable mpg, but it does take premium fuel."

Shines like the star it is.

"I've had this car for a year. At 121000 miles it's like it's just breaking in. No major problems at all and actually rates 22 city and 27 hiway on gas mileage. 24 combo. Great handling, easy to work on, and classy. I still turn heads with it. If you want one, just make sure it was maintained properly or you could run into some costly replairs."

"Cried when purchased and crying to sell...but...can't drive two cars. Like everything about this car....especially the burgundy color. You don't see these around much. Driving 500 miles home after a long weekend is effortless. Own this car!"
