I'm the second owner of my "Goldie" but
I bought it with only 14K miles on it.
I've run it to the ground, now having
188,680 miles on it today. I've
replaced the turbo, (another reviewer
said about 150K and that was about
right) but the $1700 it cost me was
still better than a new car! Can fit a
full 4X8 sheet of plywood in the back,
or two dog crates + luggage. Kids love
the comfort, great on long trips. Good
solid road car with comfort plus work-
horse capability. Pockets built into
the back of the front seats are great
for kids. Someday I'll get a van, but
not till my wagon is unfixable!
Love the storage capacity of the rear.
Bought a bed liner first thing and for
all the hauling I do it was a great
investment. Seating comfortable for
eveyone in our family. Have done 3
week road trips with kids and a dog and
lived out of this car!
Air and heat compressors could be more
reliable...and they are expensive to
fix. I can use both air and heat with
the manual controls only, as the
automatic temp gauge is $600 and it
taxes the compressor so that there is
no airflow when accelerating. Not good
in the desert!
