My 3.1l v6 has >160,000miles on the
original engine. The transmission has
about 70,000 miles on it(rebuilt).
I have never, EVER, been left on teh
side of the road because it broke
down. It has always started on the
first crank. I don't abuse her, but I
don't pamper her either.
I say it is a great car. I have only
had to spend money on teh
airconditioner, radiator, and I went
ahead and replaced all of the gaskets
(not neccessary, but it had minor
leaks) on the car when I bought it.
Too bad there is no aftermarket support.
