Have a 97 with 3.5. 179,000. other than front suspension components,this has been a great car. great motor. tranny is just starting to lag a little. definitely have all front suspension components checked. struts,strut bushings,tie rod ends,cradle bushings,bearing assemblys, ect. these cars eat suspension parts and if you are not able to do the work yourself it can be very expensive to have done.
