"payed 350 for the car since then the front and rear drive shaft, starter, transmission lines, tie rods all needed to be replaced. I do understand that these issues arose because of the previous owners neglect so I did think about that when rating it. IF in good condition it would likely be a good car."

"Purchased this car new in Jan 1999. Have had it since then. This car has been the most reliable auto I have ever owned. It has the 5 liter v-8, auto with all wheel drive. Over the last 16 years the only repairs were. A. tranny repaired once ($400) -B. had the radiator replaced once, and have had the AC repaired once($400). THAT IS ALL (It now has 199,500 miles) . I have done tune ups, brake repair, fluid changes etc over the years. At this point it now has a rear main seal leak, and tranny fluid leak but not bad enough to require any fluid replacements between services (oil every 5000 miles and tranny every 30,000 miles. It is now used only as a second car or when we go to the high county for skiing in the winter and to the high country for cooler weather in the hot months. It has absolutely no value - I think trade in is only $200 or so."
