Fifth Avenue New Yorker — Aceleration is nothing but spectacular; felt powerful and wouldn't ever bog down due to the large V8 6 litres engine. Too big it was so handling wasn't great, but has a smooth ride but with avery light steering - felt dangerous at higher speeds! Brake sysrem - great! Quality of the car is great. The engine is very sturdy and solid! Never misses a beat. Transmission is very reliable. No major repairs or maintenance were needed to keep this vehicle running. The gas mileage was very poor! It's what you 'd expect from a vehicle of this size with a V8. This vehicle is a blast to drive. You feel in command of the road. This car has lots of room inside for all your friends, family, relatives and neighbors! It is real ship!. If you can find this car in good condition and in good running order, I would recommend this vehicle - well 15 years ago! At nicer petrol prices!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Roomy with an art of elegance

Cons: Thirsty - always!
