Pros

Has been a good car for 100k miles, with hardly any maintenance.

Cons

Burns oil now at 175K.  A/C leak.  Wears tires even after an alignment. Hard to work on.

Good For The Price — I bought this car four years ago and drove it for with no problems until just recently. It did all that I wanted it to. For the last 40K I've been adding about a quart of oil for every 1000 miles. I have a check engine light on which is caused by two evap leaks (one behind the motor and the other one is above the gas tank). The a/c stopped working shortly after I bought it. I added some 134a but it didn't last very long. My problem with it now is that is leaks anti freeze from the water pump weep passage and I'm about to change the water pump because I believe that to be the issue.

Pros

Looks, highway, maneuvering

Cons

transmission (long-term), rear-door-entry for tall persons.

Great All Round Sedan — A great, versatile all round sedan. Decently built, decent performance. not much torque on the low end, but great passing and highway power available on demand from the 3.5 magnum V6. Using the available AutoStick semi-automatic Transmission is fun. Maneuverability is fantastic, the car corners amazingly due to its cab-forward architecture. The EVIC over head computer competently evaluates the trip and vehicle performance while reminding you of required service intervals. The interior cabin is simple yet refined and very spacious. Low points include long-term transmission durability.. that's about it, in my opinion.

Pros

Nice interior, good radio, reliable.

Cons

Less than perfect track record, not so sensitive accelerator, needs some paint detailing on the front (my dad, not me).

35

Not A Bad Machine — The acceleration is not all that sensitive, but in Houston area who has room to go that fast anyway? It has had a few technical issues in the past (transmission, brakes, AC, Oil leak, etc.) but it's pretty reliable regardless. I just had a new radio installed which has all the bells and whistles (Aux. port for ipod, HD radio, blue-neon-backlit buttons, concealed CD player) so that really enhances the experience. The interior is incredibly comfortable, the absence of leather always helps. Brakes are... well... brakes, what can I say, they work so who cares? All in all, I could do a LOT worse for a first car...a LOT worse!

Pros

It's a joy to drive. Very comfortable, fits me like a glove.  Handles beautifully.  I drive a twisting and curvy road on a regular basis and this car makes the trip a pleasure.  It goes well in the snow too!  Garage kept and clear coat finish still has bright shine!

Cons

Generally gets a good rating overall.  It has met many demands over the years.  The tire and wheel design are probably the biggest drawback.  The wheel must be cleaned and sealed on a regular basis, otherwise the tires will leak and go flat.  Tender sidewalls on the tires.  Unfortunately, they do not make the original yellow letter tires that were designed for this car.

Love That Car! — The car is dependable, great to drive, and despite many road miles put upon it (213,000 miles) it still performs well. The Nascar styling is an "eye catcher" for those diehard fans. Good gas mileage for a full size car. Maintenance cost is reasonable. Spacious interior for full sized or large adult passengers. Seat belts are adjustable and very comfortable. Leather trim is of high quality and all seams are intact. The dash and interior door trim is solid and durable. Generous trunk space and plenty of storage in the doors and center console. There are heat/air conditioning vents on the console that supply the rear passengers directly, which is a nice feature. For a v6, the car has plenty of power to navigate quickly in high demand traffic conditions. The passing gear will leave everyone in the dust!

Cons

Absoutely none

If You Get The Chance, Buy One — Likes +Performance +Reliability +Handling +Styling Dislikes -Poor turning circle The performance of the 2.7l engine is fantastic, easily keeping up with Interstate traffic, and was extremely reliable, bringing in 1,500 miles/week with no failures, breakdowns and always got you there in great comfort!

Review Title? — While it lasted, it was a great car. Had a good balance between performance and driveability for family life. It got decent gas mileage and wasn't too expensive. The downfall though was it's reliability. We had several problems with it and it is known for having a myriad of engine problems.

Pros

It sheilds you from the rain nicely

Cons

It's not really a fun car

25

Glad They Stopped Making Them If I'm Honest — The build quality isn't very great (small things fall apart or quit working), but the overall durability of the car is impressive (stupid accidents wont take you off the road). Accelerates about the same as a basic Mustang from the 90's, is more practical and looks less stupid. Gas mileage is crap if you try to have any fun driving it.

the engine.

Jason's Car — I like how it handles. Its suspension is solid and provides a really good ride. It really hasn't needed many repairs except for the engine when I bought it. The cost of ownership is very reasonable. Its is much lower now that my wife and I have moved down to arizona. The gas mileage is great. Both highway and city driving.
