Pros

Good power from the 3.4L V6. Has very good passing power. Havent had to do anything to the car since i owned it. Gets about 26 MPG on my 103 mile roundtrip on a work day.

Cons

Lots of road noise. Torque steer is very evident when power is laid on. Small fuel tank...about 12 gallons. I can only go about 300 miles on a tank.

Good Work Car But Not Much Of A Traveling Car. — Overall I plan to drive this car till it just wont go any more. It should last me many years to come and it seems to be very reliable so far. I took one trip with this car and that was enough for me...it was about 250 miles round trip and my butt had enough by the time I reached my destination and the road noise drove me nuts. Great work car if your commute is under 50 miles. Definitely had to upgrade the stereo and speakers for my commutes.

Pros

It's sporty, yet functional.

Cons

Wish the gas gauge didn't go down so fast, might have something to do with my lead foot though.

Great Car! — I absolutely love this car, it handles great, especially around curves. This car was made for the road. The fuel economy isn't the best, but it's worth it for the power. Super cheap to maintain and have no complaints at all about this car.

Gets Great Gas Mileage But Is Hard To Keep Running — great gas mileage but costs a lot for up keep. Not a bad looking car but would never buy one again. Cost of ownership is not bad but it all depends on what needs to be fixed and where you take it.

My Transportation Gets Me To Where I Have To Be. — it gets me back and forth to work but that's about it cause it needs new tires and some minor things done but it has speed and will hit 60 in nothing flat. for a 6 cylinder runs good. Just old, as for performance it is good on all three built it is old cost cheap fun to drive well better than walking.

It Is A Good High School Or College Car. — The performance of the car is pretty good. She handles nicely, can accelerate fairly quickly, and stop on a dime. The car has not needed any repairs, but there is a few nioses when turning. I think the car would be best described as girly sport. It doesn't look like a muscle car, but it definately has some spunk. The interior is nothing fancy, but it is comfortable. She gets decent mileage, I believe about 30 mpg, and maintenance has been good so far. I enjoy driving the car, and testing her out every once in a while.

Dk — It's a really nice car. It had 31,100 miles when i bought it. No scratches or dents. It has a monsoon stereo system that really pounds. It gets 20 mpg in town and about 30 on the highway. The top speed is 120 mph, and then the governener kicks on

Its A Great Car... Afe And Great On Gas. — My car is named Juicy la Berry and she absolutely rocks!! She's pretty, fast and likes to shake it when she can... (sounds like her mother, doesn't it?) She's good on gas, a great shade of raspberry (hence, the name).... and she will look even better once I tint her windows.
