I have owned this car for 8 years now.
Only major repair was heating core for
$500. Minor repair I performed myself
at no cost was putting pan gasket back
in place and retightening back up. Also
pressure cap on expansion tank needed
to be replaced. Other repair was a $20
or so idler pulley went bad - common
Lower cost than all other competing
vehicles, very reliable, decent
performance and very comfortable. Fold
down rear seats allow me to place
bicycle easily in back.
Place quality bearing in idler pulley,
better quality heater core (went on my
1988 Taurus as well).
