Description: Not only does this car look astonishing, but it drives just as well. It has substantial power for being a non-turbo, which is directly related to its low miles and maintenance history. It shifts excellent. Suspension is excellent. Pirelli tires are new. It has a great list of mechanical maintenance and preventative maintenance, many of which were performed in the last several years. All of the accessories work great (i.e. air conditioning, heat, cruise control, power windows, door locks, antenna, instrument cluster, etc.) The engine and chassis are exceptionally clean and dry. There are no leaks. There are no pending maintenance issues. There is no rust whatsoever. This wagon is just all around fantastic. Please feel free to email me with any additional questions.
