Pros

nice package for the year it was built

Cons

expensive reairs, low market value

35

Just Ok — i was surprised with the amount of features this car has to be a 98 year model, like traction control and side airbargs, but i was soon disappointed on how often it needed repairs and just how bad on gas the car was, another thing that made me get rid of the car was how expensive the parts were for a car that is very under priced on the market. I would not recommend this car to anyone looking for a reliable car.

Last Choice Car... — I bought this used car and owned it for 3 years. This car got a good luxury features in that year model. Vehicle is heavy compared to similar line cars. The car got several issues with the engine & other parts. Spent few thousand $$ towards the repairs. I was not satisfied with owning this car. Traded off for Toyota Prius!

Cons

none

Made In Germany — It didnt come with the northstar engine.But it was built in Germany. So it is pretty well built.The car really handles well at high speeds, and corners like no other car I've owned. I wish I bought it brand new !!!!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

leather seats, sun roof, 12 cd disc changer, and boise sound sysyem

Cons

always fixing something

It Gets Me Around.... Most Of The Time — I love my car other than a few repairs now and then.  I love my sterio system the acceleration and the leather seats.  It has needed a lot of repairs but i have realized that the cost to fix it is not worth the fun and comfort that the car provides.
