Billy-O what part of NY? I'm upstate in Herkimer near Utica. Kinda half way between Syracuse and Albany. I have an '01 with almost 64K on it now. Had 48k last May when I bought it. So far no complaints. One thing to keep an eye out for is the oil light. There's a common problem on this issue and a TSB about it. Mine started to show itself at about 58K. Its an easy fix so not to scare you. I've had a check engine light on occasionally (happened yesterday again) and two codes, one for the battery being disconnected (which it wasn't, kinda strange) and the other for the EGR valve. I haven't noticed any problems and eventually it must have corrected itself because it went out and before yesterday, didn't come on for many months. Mine was very good in the snow, and we get plenty up here. Handles nice and is responsive. I think you made a good choice. One of only a few cars I actually felt comfortable in, roomy but not honkin' huge. And you gotta love 4 wheel disc, stop on a freakin' dime!!! Funny, too. I just noticed your pic and mine's the same color. Enjoy.
