The Car's Look: I disliked the car's body style. It was large and boat like in appearance. The lines and detailing on the outside were attempting to be "cool" but only made the car look less cool because the attempt was so poorly executed.

Doing repairs myself was difficult because of how the engine was laid out - I hated that. The factory paint job was poorly done, and the sealant started pealing sometime early in the life of the car.
