Great Car But... Some What Expensive To Keep! — I can't believe how big this car is. I think this car is big as my GMC Yukon XL. With powerful engine, I can pretty much feel safe anywhere on the road. It still looks majastic and everytime I open the door "Hail to the Chief" should be playing in the background. I got it 8 years ago for my dad who always wanted to drive MD but he had hard time keeping up with the cost and the stiff premium gas price. He gave it to me and now I drive it once in awhile on weekends with my wife and kids. I try to fix everything that I can on it but the parts can be some what expensive.

Owner for 8 years, 11 months

Miles Driven per Year:8,000

Pros: BIG A$$ car that still holds its beauty and presence.

Cons: Expensive to keep if you make less than 100K per year.

Hot, Still To Be Pimped, Ulitmate Old School — love the way it drives, its like having a land yacht on the freeway. If you pull behind people it seems like they move out of the way of the authority it has.

Pros: none that i see,

Cons: high maintenance cost

Built like a tank and still very quiet. It doesnt last though. ITS UNReliable and costs your arms and legs to keep. There are not too many on the road. You have to beg to sell one to people.
