I purchased this vehicle used, knowing that the transmission need special attention. Since I work on my own car, changing the transmmission fluid frequently has been easy and has paid off. An excellent car, extremely undervalued, and drives smooth with a very comfortable and roomy interior (for its size, it's no Deville!).
Bench front seat, soft couch-like seating surfaces, and smooth ride.
Transmission was ahead of it's time (I have the four speed auto) and shows it. Needs way too much maintenence.
