    This was the first new car I'd ever bought and I've never had another like it. Bulletproof, no-squeaks or rattles. Anti-sway bar replaced early on under TSB. Cup holder, timing belt, thermostat, radiator, water pump, alternator. Engine still purrs like a cat.

    Overheats at 70 or better in hot weather. Head gaskets are good. No water in the oil. Replacing the radiator and thermostat did nothing to help. Rear bumper rusted into foil and I replaced last week. Leather seats on the Limited were paper thin and have degenerated and split down to the foam on driver's side. Replacement skins are ridiculously priced! Love this thing.
