Bought it off of a private owner in
1998 with 68,000 miles. We've run it up
to 148,000 with no major problems or
expenses. It was always ready for a
trip to the store or out of state. It's
always been serviced "by the book".
Only parts replaced in the 5 years of
ownership were: Water pump, EGR valve &
solenoid, battery, one tune up with
ignition wires and a 4 wheel brake job.
Pretty darn good for 148,000 miles.
The 3.3 V-6 engine was easy on gas but
had more than enough power for passing
& merging. Bottom line... This engine
is a "monster" when it needs to be.
