Looks good, roomy interior, avoid the 2.7 engine
June 3, 2018
I got this car with 44000 miles on the odometer. Had it until there were 158000 miles on it. And I wish I still had this car! I had the LX model with the 2.7 liter engine. It had very lackluster power for accelerating from a dead stop or any aggressive passing but fine for normal day to day surface street driving. The 2.7 liter engine is known for 2 major issues, oil sludge build up if the oil isn't changed regularly and the water pump that when it goes will leak anti-freeze into the engine and must be fixed immediately. The water pump fix will run you around $2000+ because of the dumb design of it and half the engine needing to be taken apart. Personally, l never had an issue with the oil sludge, but it’s something to keep in mind.
On the positive side the interior is really roomy!! One of the few cars that I could 'sit behind myself' in with the driver’s seat all the way back (I'm 6'4"). Can comfortably drive around 4 adults with no space issues. The trunk is also huge too. It's definitely comfortable on long drives and good on gas as well for a car its size.
