First the bad stuff. My Skylark has
needed new brakes, a new fuel
pump and a new fuel injector so far.
I have driven it from 29K miles up to
72K. The carpet under the driver's
left foot is disintegrating.
Now the good stuff. This car gets
pretty good mileage. I can usually go
400 highway miles before adding
another 13.5 to 14 gallons to the
tank. The V6 is decently zippy. The
governor stops at 104, but the engine
hasn't even started to get loud at that
point and control is still very good.
Unlike some cars, you could drive
this one at 95+ for hours without
The front end of the car looks good.
The back end is ugly.
No need to suggest improvements
since the Skylark is no longer in
production. 1998 was the last year.
