| ||What things have gone wrong with the car?||Squeaky brakes. Water leaked into spare wheel well in trunk. Remote keyless entry range was about 5 ft. Wood grain paneling bleaches out. No cup holder in back. Back seat does not fold down.|
| ||General comments?||Bought the car when it was two years old with 21,000 miles from a dealer. Got the "out-the door" price I was looking for with my trade-in, so the $24,000 list price didn't bother me. Absolutely loved the car. Excellent feel, ride, comfort, features. Low to none maintenance other than standard stuff. Very roomy in back for adults. Engine runs so quiet, you think you've stalled at a red light. Never thought about the safety features until I had a 60 mph front-end collision. Except for loose panels, the cabin was totally intact. Front-end absorbed all the impact. Air bags worked as planned. The car gave it's life protecting me - all I had was some minor scratches and bruises. Test driving other models now for comparison, but nothing is impressing me. I'll most likely go right back for an Avalon.|
