The car is relatively low mileage for its age because the original owner in Indiana, from whom I bought it in 2014, used it only locally and I have used it only occasionally in Florida (I live in New England). Following are pluspoints:

·The car has a new battery (2018).

·Updated Kenwood HD Radio/disc player and speakers plus an XM receiver. (The XM minituner is portable so can be used in multiple cars and/or in an XM-ready home AV receiver without buying additional subscriptions.)

·The A/C has recently been replaced (compressor, condenser, evaporator etc) and is essentially new.

·In addition to the owner’s manual, I have five years of maintenance records, the original 1992 sales brochure, and the complete factory workshop manual.

·The car has always been non-smoking.

All the usual stuff for a 1992 top-line luxury vehicle: Power steering, brakes, windows & locks, cruise, power sunroof; all leather upholstery in good condition; stock alloy wheels and tires. Engine (3.0 liter V-6, 4-speed automatic transmission) runs well. A strong, solid, comfortable cruiser for driver and passengers. It handles well and I find it a joy to drive. Clean Florida title.

Negatives are minor: (1)The right-rear passenger window has an intermittent problem and sometimes won’t close. Hasn’t been a problem for me because rarely carry rear-seat passengers. (2)The trunk can be opened only by a button on the driver’s door; the trunk cannot be opened with the key. (3) A small tear on the side of the driver’s seat. (4)The console compartment between the front seats should lock but doesn’t.
