I'm tired of throwing $ into this hunk of junk. It is these kinds of cars that lead to the decline of the U.S. auto industry. Water pump went out at 60 K. Tie rod replaced at 65 K as well as needing a new balancer which requires dropping the engine enough to replace it. Fan overloaded the computer which lead to the fan not working, therefore the radiator blew. Fan, computer & radiator $450. Power window regulator gears in front doors shot and needed replaced. Last but not least, the AC pump seal shot. I will not fix this as it is about a $900 repair; which is the blue book of the car. All of this before 76,000 miles. Fix or Repair Daily. You better believe it.

I bought this car at the begining of March, and all I have had to do was get an oil change, front end alignment and some new tires. Everything else is pretty spiffy. It's a '93 and it only had 112,xxx original miles on it. It's also super reliable I've driven it from Washington through Oregon, Idaho,and Utah then back an had no problem whatsoever and that was a 3,000 mile trip.
