I bought the car in 1997 used with 19,000 miles and it's still running strong at 160,000. I've never even changed the transmission fluid! The engine is still strong and has never had any mechanical issues except normal wear and tear. In fact, it still has the original exhaust system! I wish they never stopped making them. Unfortunately it's time to retire the old girl. I'm selling to my niece.

As soon as I got it, the transmission started to slip. I had to replace that once it just wouldn't go anymore. Then, there was a consistent problem with tie rods and wheel bearings. I've replaced them three times. It's unreal. They are bad again, and now there's a fuel leak, but I'm just going to drive it until I can't anymore. That car's almost ready to be put to rest though, it has around 150,000 miles now. The transmission is also starting to slip again. At times I just hated this car, but then again, I loved it. It's very nice and roomy, and for the most part, reliable. It always started fine, my only problems were transmission, and those stupid tie rods.

I purchased this vehicle with about 90,000 from my Aunt and Uncle who always kept up with the maintenance on this car and had no problems, because the problems were waiting for me. I have had the vehicle for 3 years and I replaced the struts (which my aunt and uncle had already done), brakes, rotors, tie rods, water pump, hood hydraulics just don't work, serpentine belt 3 times and the tensioner pulley. And then there is the AC, the vents up by my windshield blew out that hottest heat ever all the time full blast and would not stop! Of course I couldn't afford to fix it right away so I just had to drive around all sweaty until I shelled out $750.
