only year with all these troubles except fuel pump

all gauges in dash quit working except one. failed controller in transmission put high pressure in-side causing car to jerk, air sensor under car failed, had to cut hole in back of car to replace fuel pump in gas tank & heater core in-car no heat.


Very comfortable and reliable car

It is a very comfortable car, easy to see out of, easy to drive. It isn’t the prettiest car ever, but besides that it runs great.


No Problems. Like Bew

It is solidly built, quiet, and smooth. Has comfortable seats. Starts and runs perfectly. Not a problem on the vehicle at all. Runs quietly. Test drive
