2007 4dr Sedan 203-horsepower 3.0L V6
6-speed automatic FWD
The only real problem with the car of any concern has been the rear brake problem and the dealer replaced them following the TSB guidance. One minor problem is the fixed plastic splash guards - no clearance for snow/ice buildup and they rub occasionally.
