Pros

The car is fast, a sleeper and sexy!

Cons

It can be expensive for replacement parts. A $900 O2 sensor nearly put me into shock!

Awesome Sleeper, Luxurious And Fast. — Couldn't beat it with a stick! I LOVE this car. She eats other, more performance oriented cars with ease. The comfort of the ride is amazing as well! We have owned it for 2 years and loved every moment of it!

Pros

good power and fun run if you get the right model

Cons

good car just some problems

35

Okay Car Great For A First Car And Can Last A While — I has many problems w/ the transmission but the engine runs solid. It has pretty good power and okay gas mileage. It has a spider crack on the windshield so you need to go slower on the highway or the crack could get worse.

Pros

The turbo is nice, like the AWD. It looks unassuming.

Cons

Automatic transmission

25

My Volvo — It is not a manual, so its slow off the line. Left strut needs adjusting. The dash rattles at around 1500rpm. It will be better once i get some money to tune it up.

Pros

Build quality, overall quality

Cons

Not really fast but can pick up speed

35

Great Car — Good reliable car, long lasting,mine has 227,000 miles. It has pretty good acceleration for a car of its size. Cost of ownership is expensive because it takes premium gas. Its ok to drive, nothing really out of the box though

Pros

Its a Tank

Cons

Slowmobile

25

Strong But Slow — Acceleration is delayed. Built like a dam tank. A little boxy from the outside but i like it. Takes up a bit of gas but is overall good for the money spent on it. Not really a thrill but it gets me around.
