Engine solid but interior failing
The car feels like a tank. Very heavy to drive around but very solid and feels safe for a family car. Gas mileage is low as you would expect from a heavy car like this. Car has been used for low mileage (only 104,000 miles on a 2002 model). The interior has not held up as well as the engine. Various parts of the trim and plastics have been breaking or falling off over the last several years. Very disappointing, even for a entry level luxury model.
Great reliable car
I like the black color of the exterior of my car. I love the body style of the coupe. The interior is grey with white checks. I've never seen this in another car, but it gives it a lot of character. I dislike the fact that the seats are cloth. The pick up of the car is good for a v4. It being supercharged is excellent. I can switch it to winter mode to start in second gear and shift at lower speeds. The automatic lights and mirrors are a plus. The fuel economy is about average or below; I fill up about every 10 days. I have a new stereo system that the car accommodates including a sub in the trunk. The sub takes up about half the trunk space, which isn't very large. There are four seats, and one must move a front seat to access the back, which can be annoying. There are no cupholders in the back. The two cupholders in the front have a moving component to fold which has broken. Some fabric is peeling off next to the back windows. The electronic key is useful and has a spare normal key inside it. This car has no trunk button, which seems to confuse other car owners.
