"I have had this car with no problems other than standard maintenance for 10 years. Still looks great! Just time to get a new one cause I don't want to do shocks & struts. Peppy to drive & decent gas mileage."

"I have owned this car since I bought New for my wife in 2004. It has more zip than one knows to do with it. It's a real Hot Rod. Rides a little hard but that is to be expected because of the dynamics of the tires, suspension and V-6 3.5 engine. My wife and I are in our 70's and would like to have one more new car. I know any potential buyer will be very happy with it."
