Great Little Car — great travel car, good power with the v6, a little small in side, easy to maintain and fix. dont get a 2 door, been having problems with both windows since i got it (mechanicly) and since the doors are so big the hinges need extra attention.

Pros

great acceleration, COMFORTABLE SEATS!!! long life, if it doesn't get crashed, room for friends. HUGE trunk. it was a fun little car to drive

Cons

gas mileage was just average with the 6cyl engine, and the speedometer went out. that's all I can come up with.

35

Not A Bad Car — I got this little 96 as a senior in high school. It's not the coolest car to own, unless you're a grandma, but it actually packs a lot of power, if you have the v6. the speedometer went out on it, but that's probably because the power steering fluid puked out all over it's lines... fun, but not an expensive repair. The acceleration was great, so was the speed. I surprised many drivers with how quickly I could accelerate around them or from a stop! I was really bumbed out when It got rear ended and totaled!

Pros

Awesome gas mileage.

Cons

Hard to sit adults in rear seat due to lack of legroom.

35

Great Gas Mileage And Great To Get From Point A To Point B. — Gas mileage is great, I was getting around 28 mpg highway and 20 mpg city. The interior was okay, I had to have the seat all the way back, so no one could sit behind me because there was no legroom. It was a good car to get from point a to point b. Not really much of a cruising car, it was nothing great to look at. Yet it was a good car.
