Keep it for its size

1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue GLS 4dr Sedan
I bought this car 2 yrs used, and it now has almost 160k miles on it. Before I go negative, this car is a hoot to drive! It sticks in the curves, and has big mirrors and reasonable acceleration. 80 mph is like standing still. Mine is on the 2nd engine and 2nd ABS module, the back window machines are busted, and some think it is more trouble than its worth. This time its a water leak from the intake cover. I think this year I will have put over $1500 into repairs (including that ABS and break overhaul, and what I expect from this leak). I may also need a mass air flow sensor. My mechanic loves to see it coming.
I am 6 ft with a long torso, and this is one of few cars that fits me. An unsung feature is the automatic door lock timer, which I miss desperately in my Mitsubishi. The timer prevents locking for 4 seconds after all four doors close, and is most convenient when unloading equipment.
