We purchased a SL Ciera Wagon in 8/02
for another basic vehicle with better
fuel economy. We also had a 99 Tahoe
and 01 Dodge Ram 2500 SLT P/U. The
Ciera wagon had 173000 miles on it when
we purchased it, but was in excellent
condition inside and out. It now has
194000 miles and is going strong. We
are averaging 25 mpg and have had no
problems. Not bad for $1000 dollars.
The oil gets changed every 3500 miles
with Quaker State Higher Milage oil.
Compared to our other two vehicles,
this one has already paid for itself in
gas savings alone. Of course it doesn't
have the luxury items the Tahoe has,
but it is still the most used vehicle
in our household.
Number one is the gas mileage. The car
is 12 years old and is basically in
brand new condition.
