Pros

I purchased this old heap off of craigslist a few month's ago cheap. It came with some apparant problems. The exhaust system and fuel tank I had to get immediate attention.

Cons

Right now its running on life support. Shes dripping coolant so I poured in a bottle of extra strength stop leak. The rocker panels are rotted away on both sides toward the front of the car.

Old Timer Ciera That's Seen Better Days — This is one of "GM's" blunders, so I installed 4 mud flaps. The paint is peeling around the fenders, gas tank, and trunk lock area-surface rust. I'm not planning on dumping much more into this old heap.She has 81,000 miles on her.

Phat — huge trunk space, mad comfortable, and drives like a dream it may look like a grandpa car but this car rules. Easy to replace sterio as well! Completely safe in an accident as well. Gets you from point A to B easy.

Its A Great Car And It Just Runs — I love my car. It gets great gas mileage down the road and it has the extra power I need to blow past a semi truck. It handles like a dream and is a really smooth ride. I love it

Love It — performance is great, the 3.1 v6 is really solid and powerful, 160 under the hood with 185 torques the cost of ownerships so far is just oil and gas, and it's a great car it's not an ugly car either.

Very reliable without any major performance problems at all. Very comfortable. Smooth ride.

Cons

Nothing although gas mileage and seats could be better. Could be fun if sport package came with the car.

Reliable Little Angel — I got the car at 45,000 miles on it. The 3100 V6 is economical and quiet, transmission shifts smooth. My greatgrandmother bought the car brand new in 1996. Although sport package should've come with the car anyway, it's a great reliable car to have to go to and from work.

My Best Investment — I just bought this car but the price was righ and I'm amazed at how well it still runs after 12 years. I have a feeling this will be the best car I've ever owned.

Pros

Hauls tons of stuff, seats 8 people, good highway mileage, reasonable power, comfortable, refuses to die.

Cons

Bad city mileage, terrible handling, bad under-hood design.

Perfect Car For A College Student. — Perfect blend of economy and utility. It can fit a twin-size mattress flat on the floor and can squeeze in 8 adults with seat belts for all. The rear-facing seat in the back is fun and more comfortable than you'd think. Reliability is very good, but things are slowly falling apart after 195,000 miles. My mileage has ranged from 13 to 33, usually around 20 in the city and 28 on the highway. It handles like an aquarium.
