Pros: "Beautifull 4.0 liter dual overhead cam engine."

Cons: "Would be expensive to repair if needed."

"This car combines luxury and performance at an affordable price with the GM incentive I got back in 1999. Never had any maintenance issue other than normal wear items. Not a drag racer but with the Autobahn package, a real luxo freeway flier... and still gets 26 mpg at 75 mph. Just great."

"I bought the car new in early 1999 and have been well satisfied with it. Average gas mileage is 22-23 year after year. Has the best paint work of any car I have ever owned. Has many standard features not in most cars for the next ten years. If they were still made I would buy another. The 1995 had some problems and it hurt the reputation of the later year models. My car has the autobahn package and corners very well but rides a little stiffer I would prefer it had not been installed."

"The seats are the first thing that catch your attention. Soft and soooo nice to sit in. The reliability is amazing! Mine has 220,000 miles and still run sharp! No transmission issues either. I change oil regularly and make sure to check all fluids. The only thing that I could rate low is some of the bells and whistles have stop working as well as they used to. Nothing that is show-stopping!"
