This is the best car that I have ever
owned. Out of all of the usage that I
have on this car I have only replaced
the alternater after nearly 100000
miles. The car is now 6 years old and
it feels the same as it did when I
bought it brand new. Every where I go
people are always turning their heads
and looking at my car. I get
compliments on my car all of the time.
Electronic traction control is now available on all models, with a bigger gas tank and an oil life monitor standard. A Torsen limited-slip rear axle comes with V8 models (and V6 cars with the performance package), while an eight-speaker Delco/Monsoon sound system goes into the convertible. A power-steering cooler is now available for V8s, and a Hurst shifter is optional on the six-speed manual transmission. The Ram Air WS6 package now sports dual outlet exhaust, and two new exterior colors debut, Pewter and Medium Blue Metallic. The 30th anniversary Trans Am sports an extroverted paint scheme that features two blue stripes running over the hood and deck lid.
