Pros: seats and handling
Cons: odometer visibility and size of the sun visors
Advice: make certain that you know the options which are available and know that the ones you desire are present on the vehical you are looking at.drives like a champion. odometers impossible to read while driving. this makes it hard to follow driving directions at night on country roads. compares well with our 1996 cad sedan deville in almost all respects.
Pros: engine/trans response
Cons: finished appearance of door trim panels
Advice: inspect your vehicle carefully before buying,make sure details are addressedoverall response very good..gas mileage met epa specs,,,vehicle quiet ride very good thru 75 m.p.h.,,automatic heater/a/c controls very poor due to hi reflection of daylight reflection,, almost not seeable when bright light reflection shines on window display of settings..takes too much of your time to see where certain settings are and much of the same complaint appies to the sound system settings display.. fine at night with dash lights on but very poor in hi reflective conditions...with abs system brake pedal a little too soft for me..really wonder if the vehicle will stop in time..i have an xls version 2001,, finish very good except for all 4 door trim leather panels,, poor mold while being formed in manufacturing has left raised edges around power window/door lock contols,,looks poor,, toyota inspected and laughed at it and said no help.$36,000 and laughed and said no help!!!what a joke on me...customer satisfaction didn't apply just save the warranty money on replacing the door trim panels...the district service mgr. made that decision on the spot...
Pros: CONTROLS ARE CLOSE TO YOUR HANDS, AND CAR RUNS ON REGULAR 87 OCT. GAS
Cons: LOOKS AND RUBBER TIMING BELT
Advice: IF STYLE IS'NT IMPORTANT THIS IS A GREAT CARVERY SMOOTH WITH AMPLE POWER. BRAKES FELT GOOD, AND STEREO SOUNDS PLEASING.
