I love the car (red). Nice handling,interior, exterior are good, big trunk, but the transmission acts funny but never stalled, car seems to waddle a little especially when cold outside,fine when it warms up, has some leaks but don't know where fron exactly, had too many opinions, all looking for lots of $$$ to fix. Already had in several shops, had oil sending unit replaced, other things supposed to have been fixed, but still leaks????,doesn't smoke at all, oil only a little low sometimes.
