"Best car I have driven. Bought it from a dealer for $3,000 in 2006 and it has run like a dream. Good gas mileage, almost 400 miles on a tank of gas & do regular oil changes every 2,500 to 3,000 miles, & is now starting to burn a quart betweew oil changes. It is now almost 16 years old and has aproximately 158,000 miles. Great on short trips and long highway miles. With plenty of room for getting in and out of the car, especially for the elderly. My trouble light is on constantly since 2006, had it checked by my mechanic -could find nothing wrong, it's still on and no problems. The leather seats are hot in the summer, I use a cushion to sit on. My mechanic said it's a good car and should go well over 200,000 mile. One thing I do not like is the windshield washers sit low in from of the car and fill with leaves, and ice, so cleaning out the area by the wipers is essential for have the windshield wipers work properly. During the winter they freeze up with ice, as my care in outside, so must warm up quite a while. I still recommend this vehicle, even in the used state, since they no longer make them."

"Was my father's car until his death. It's been absolutely reliable and has needed virtually no unscheduled maintenance. 12 years old but only 67,000 miles, the paint is like new, the leather and carpets are very nice. Just a really good but stodgy looking luxo-cruiser. I've pretty much used it all for highway miles, and it runs consistently in the 27 to 28 mpg range."
