I really enjoy my car. It is a comfortable size for seating & maneuverability. The trunk does not look that large from the outside, but it can hold an amazing amount of "stuff. " It is pretty reliable, & only in the past couple of years has it had problems that were on the expensive side. It does not have a lot of bells & whistles, but it has met my needs very well.

It is dependable, low-maintenance, and handles well.

It is a full-size sedan that handles well - I like the amount of pickup it has and It's stability in highway driving. It's a little large and the turning radius is terrible, and for some reason you can switch gears while barely touching the shift. I'm not a fan of the color or interior (white, and tan canvas), but overall I like the car and enjoy driving it.

Well since I have owned it I have had to put a new starter alternator battery and water pump on it and I have had it for 2 yrs. Now it feels like the transmission is going out. I really need to find a new one. But I do love the stereo in it and the sunroof. It has a 3. 0 v6 engine. So it does have the power but just not now.
