I bought this car new and have had
little trouble other than
maintenance. Currently 138K. For
those who question the firm shift--the
auto transmission shifts firmly but
this is why it far outlasts any
smoother shifting GM transmission.
Smooth shifting comes from slipping
clutches which accelerates wear. Firm
shifts allow transmission life of 200M
or more. Very durable, reliable car.

replace timing belt with a timing
chain eliminating the $450 maintenance
bill every 90K
