Pros

Good size, comfort and reliability

Cons

Handling

115

An Average Sedan With A Bit Of Comfortable Sport — Good Acceleration and braking performance, but this is a luxury car and the handling is nothing special. It has a very comfortable ride. This car has all the features that were available at the time. It would be an amazing car for a road trip.

Nice Luxury Sedan — After a history of bad running cars, this car was a godsend. I bought it used with 112,000. The car runs like a dream, and the only problem I've had was a couple broken window motors, which is no big deal at all. The car has some nice pick up with 150hp in the 2.4L 4cyl. Being a 4 cylinder, the car is also pretty fuel efficient.

Pros

Great acceleration. Easy to park because of size. Very reliable and stable car.

Cons

No the best looking car on the outside. The interior was cheap. Cheap radio and cheap fabric.

My Very First Car While I Was In College — I beat that car up. I had 1 accident in it and did not take good care of it. I ended up donated it to the SF YMCA as a tax right off.
