    What's the 605 like?

    Barbagallo's, Perth has a 605 (3.0 V6) in white with black leather, looks like perfect nick, for $18,990 - 117,000 k's, fully loaded. Is this cheap? They can't sell it...

    The price looks about right for one of these in good nic. I have seen a few advertised all for about 20G. They certianly are a lot of car for the price. Write ups when they were released were quite good, new price was about 60G I think. I recall drooling over one with leather interior when I picked up my 306XT in 94. They were never a big seller so its hard to get a handle on reliablity but they are Pugs wink . I remember the dealer telling me about gold plated electrical conectors for reliablity. Hope spares don't come at gold plated prices. disappro
    Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten!

    The 605s recieved their fair share of negative press, but that's typical of automotive journalists--there is no such thing as an objective automobile review. That's why I prefer to use my own judgement and form my own conclusions. The only reason I read auto magazines is for the pictures.

    Take a look at some 605 owner surverys. You'll note that a vast majority of owners LOVE their car, and wouldn't trade it unless they *had* to.

    I'm sure that the model has its faults, and that there are atleast a few disgruntled customers, but that is true for all cars. Personally, I know someone who has had major trouble repeatedly with their '91 Honda Accord--which is supposed to be bulletproof. It happens to the best of them.

    If you like the car and it is in good condition with a good service history, you shouldn't hesitate to buy it...
