Bought the car used for $850. Motor would not turn over. 3.1L with a 5 speed Had the motor rebuilt and .30 over. I have had replaced the $200 transmission mount, tires, fuel filter, fan relay, battery, computer, injectors and tires since I bought it. Going to replace the dash panel and seats next. New steering wheel to get rid of the airbag and fat steering wheel. Love this car!!
Love the feel as you leave a stop light. Feel the power as you cruise down the street.
Seats, good god! Im going to swap my seats out for a 4th GEN Camaro for comfort. Still can't road trip in the car because there is no leg room in the back. Wish they would have switched the RPM and Speedo guages around.
I bought my RS, rebuilt the 3.1 and had it bored over, replace the rear end, trans mount, fuel filter and was good to go. Wish the seats were more comfortable and that the tach and speedometer were switched around
This car is great "cheap performance." It is a very reliable car. I have taken many trips in this car. One being almost 800 miles. the car ran great the whole way. I'm very pleased with owning this car.
My favorite feature about this car is the handling around corners.
I bought my 1991 RS with the 305 V-8 from a private owner. Never seen winter except this year and had only 70000 miles. I really enjoy driving this car. It is not very expensive and you get a lot of power and performance out of it. The gas mileage is (in my opinion) the only really major flaw. I manage only 13 mpg on average, which is suburban driving. The quality of the ride is very nice even though it sits so low to the ground. The ride height can prove to be a problem due to bottoming out on pretty much anything, but careful driving helps to solve that. The t-tops leak but not too bad. only what would be expected. Overall this is a very nice ride and well worth the money.
Power, ride height helps manueverability, cool design, nice wheels, and a very comfortable ride. Also the price!!
Leaks in the t-tops can be a pain at times, and cold weather isnt good. Bad in the snow and rain
I got it with 104, 000, it hadnt been taken care of. It had sat for 2 years straight one time. it ran great, shifted strong, it was reliable, only had few repairs done to it, one was the valve stem seals which are notorious for going bad on these cars, all that does is cause it to blow a puff of smoke out when first started, it quits after that...only $170 to fix. Despite how hard I drove it, was extremely strong...later it developed major oil leak....sold it at 115,000 miles but it still ran great
Highway speed ability. It would run 70 mph at only 1800 rpms...a blast to drive!!!
Valve stem seals. It would be better if it had the tuned port injection istead of the throttle body injection. Interior accessories
