I wouldn't own it unless you're a mechanic.

Pros: "It has lasted 250K miles with regular maintenance."

Cons: "If you aren't a Do-It-Yourselfer, i'd stay away."

"I bought this car with 95K miles in 1999. It runs like a top. I'm still driving it in 2014 with 250k miles. It has 3.0L engine which is solid with regular oil changes. (Run away from the 3.8L engine.) It has the AXOD transmission which has been solid, but you must perform transmission fluid and filter changes every 25K miles. Without regular transmission fluid changes, it will only last 100K miles. Radiators last about 100K miles. Change spark plugs every 25K miles. The biggest negative with the car is the high pressure coolant system. Coolant hoses have been leaking for the last 15 years even with double hose clamps. This is not a problem if you check the coolant level every couple of months. The good part about this is the coolant never needs flushing because it is always fresh."

"Bought this car in 1996 as a two year old with 21000 miles. Since then, I've put on over 160000 miles with very little gone wrong, such as heater core, a couple of leaks, two fuel pumps and a recall for the front sub frame bolts.Very comfortable seats, great 3.8 V-6 engine and smooth automatic box. Cannot complain about it; was way ahead of it's time back then. It also survived getting hit by an oil truck and being sideswiped by a red light/stop sign runner."

"Got me where I needed to go with out any problems. Good fuel economy. 3.0 engine not a power house but gets you down the road. 130,000 miles and still running like a top. Vehicle has been maintained all of its life."

"This car has had constant problems since we bought it around 10 years ago including a worsening transmission, having blown a head gasket, leaks all fluids, back windows went out some time ago, heater is broken, etc. Due to the way it's built (parts tightly packed together) it can cost twice what your average car will for manual labor should you need a repair. This car is best suited for short drives around town."

"This car, we call it the Green Dragon wagon, was at first a high maintenance vehicle, had fuel system vapor lock problems, engine cooling system issues, and would frequently go through mufflers. But, I fixed all the problems, completely replaced the A/C system in it, put new tires on it, and have kept it as a third vehicle for teen use and when one car is in the shop. It's also a great winter car."

"This was my first car I got when I was 17. I'm 22 now and it still runs like a top. It drives as smooth as any newer car I've driven, and I can get 32 mpg on the highway at 60. It's never leaked a drop of any fluids. If I could go back and help design this car, the one and only thing I would change are the small cup holders. They must have been good for the cups of the mid-90s, but our huge cups of the 21st centuries are very difficult. The cornering lights are a fun touch that none of my friends have, and the front light bar is really cool to see at night. I give it a can of Sea Foam every 6 months, and of course get the oil changed every 3000 miles."
