I got this car for free from a lady, it was in bad shape. I fix cars for fun, so I took the car. Well $1,950 later, and tons of cuts later and it runs as good as it is going to for the high high miles on it. When anyone ask me about my car I say "The only thing I pass is the gas station". I say for a high school kid this car would be good, it taken a beating keep on running, just don't run into the curb faster then 5 mph, you'll bend the body.
Just that I pass a gas station, has not left me on the road and that my A/C works.
Let see, automatic seat belts. The 2.3 L 4 inline HSC motor seal gives out easy which means replacement at least once, and oh, it leaks oil from oil pan still when I did a gasket replacement but the TSB helped with that.
