C o n c l u s i o n

  • This car is euphoric to drive!
  • The acceleration pulls you back into the seats and braking is amazing.
  • Handling is superb. Body roll is minimal. You really feel connected with the road. When you point the car somewhere, that's where it goes. Confidence inspiring.
  • I get numerous comments about the car. For a 4 door sedan it is a real eye catcher.
  • I sold this car in the fall of 2002. Check out my new ride here.
