After 210,000 miles the car started showing signs of mechanical problems.
Had since fall of 1995, Over 235,000 miles now. uto wonderful, repairs have been in line with expected cost. A/C could be better.
It was pure luck hubby found this car especially for the price he paid. We aquired the car at 186000 miles. I've had it for 5 months now and will not trade it for anything else. I don't even know where to start. Parts, decent price. repair fairly easy for a mechanic to work on. drives beautifully. My family loves it!!
