I bought my car in may 06, im the 7th owner. I got it as stock from factory. I did not have any issue with this, but not a 100% reliable car though. I did replace the clutch (little noise but worked well) and besides that trouble free. I'm very happy with this car because there are lots of aftermarket stuff for it. I have cold air intake, all MSD ingnition, undredrive pulleys, headers, spacer for the maninfold and 3.73 gears. the car runs ways faster than stock wiht this. In fact, I wouldn't be happier driving a newer or more expensive car
Lots of aftermarket stuff, peppy engine, low cost of manteinance (spare parts are all around)
Gas mileage of course, but what can you expect? Is a V8!
