I got a great deal on mine since my brother is a car salesman. I paid $1000 for it with only 63,000 miles on it! Although the a/c never worked I love this car. Built like a tank. The only problems I experienced were an radiator leak, electrical issues and a hole in the exhaust (regular wear). I had mechanic friends so repairs were cheap for me. I recently fell victim to 2 accidents in 2 months. Both times I was hit by senior men who shouldn't be driving. My car now has significant cosmetic damage and will cost more than it's worth to fix so I'm trading it in for a '94 Taurus GL sedan ::tear tear:: I would buy it again if given the opportunity!
Radio controls on the dash, storage compartment in trunk, incredibly roomy and comfortable!
Bought this car brand new in Jan 1992
and ran it for over 188,000. Just sold
it (Dec 2003) to someone at work and
car is still in great condition body
and mechanically. Has the 3.0 liter v-
6 that is virtually indestructible as
long as you maintain it. Original
transmission finally went out at
160,000. Only minor rust on bottom of
car's tailgate and it was used in the
Chicago area the entire time. Only
sold it because of great deal on new
SUV. I will miss it, but it will give
good use to new owners.
3.0 liter V6 still peppy at 188,000
miles, rides good, great for hauling
kids, groceries and large items as rear
seats fold down.
Hub cabs attached with screws and over
the time I had it, probably replaced 5
hub caps because mechanics would not
put screws back in or fasteners in
wheel rim that held screws would break.
I have two of these SW from 1992. Both
have leaking steering. One has a dead
air conditioner. One has a failing
transmission. The inadequate air
conditioning will freeze you on a cool
morning and leave you sweating by 11:00
am. The rear defroster connection wires
on both cars failed. Both have barely
adequate cooling systems. AC fogs
windows exactly where you need to look
to see the side mirrors.
