The 400e is a great car! When having the car checked out, have them pay attention to the power steering system for leakage though. I have seen quite a few 400's with steering leaks, sometimes just the little hose from the resevoir to the pump,sometimes the pump itself, and I've seen a few leaky steering boxes too. I don't know why for sure,maybe because the exhaust heat from the manifold affects the box. Don't let it worry you ,just have it inspected thoroughly. As far as the 124 chassis goes, the 400e is really a great choice for a combination of a daily driver with good performance.
