Reliable

It is safe to drive, is safe in the event of an accident. It is functional, and the automatic transmission shifts appropriately. Heating is good, sound system adequate for 1995 model year car. Non-turbo, but gets right out there on the expressways.

I wish i could an unmolested one

I like that this car is a tank. For a model year of 1995 it has more bells and whistles than some new cars. With the right tires this car can make winter driving fun. I actually look forward to snow
