The Best Car Possible When On A Tight Budget — When I first saw the car, I fell in love with it. The classic American looks, the ridiculously comfortable interior, the sweet rumble of the V6 engine, I love it all. Even though my car was not well taken care of or maintained, it proves to be a reliable car that still has plenty of life left in it. Parts and maintenance are cheap, except for tires which are getting increasingly hard to get. Since they are cheap to buy and maintain, they are probably the best car you could possibly get when you're on a tight budget. The only real downside is the fuel economy, although this is still surprisingly good for a 3.8 V6.

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

Pros: Great value, classy looks, the 3.8 V6 is a great engine, extremely comfortable ride, even after a long and hard life the car feels solid, like it could go on like this forever.

Cons: The fuel economy is average at very best when you are used to European or Japanese cars.

Amazing Car — This car was amazing! Perfect exterior and interior. She looked exactly like the one in the picture except she had stock alloy wheels and the chrome luggage rack that came stock on the brougham edition. The car was a cheetah under the hood with a 3.8 V6 There was no feeling better than blowing some hot shot off the line (and the rest of the track for that matter) While cursing in a grocery getter. I drove this car from Seattle Washington to Augusta Georgia. Its performance paint job and beauty is most likely why she got stolen. It broke my heart.

Pros: Everything. Ran beautifully, felt like a manson inside.

Cons: Amaperntly it was a such a good car a thief wanted it too.
