Built well, but Beware...
By 87classic on


1990 Chevrolet Caprice Classic 4dr Sedan


I bought this car off an older uncle in
my family who pampered this car and
rarely drove it. As of this date it has
only 180000KM's and the problems with
it are increasing by the day. BEWARE! i
have the 307 W/OD engine in this car,
it gets a mere 12MPG (THATS RIGHT!) and
sucks down oil like you wouldnt
believe. I take VERY good care of this
car and the engine just seems to want
to quit on me. We think its the valve
guide seals, or the carburetor float is
letting in too much gas and diluting
the oil, or possible the piston rings
are gone...however its not worth my $$
to get it fixed ($700-1200 job)

Best Features

Big and roomy thats about it. I feel safe when driving this car.

Worst Features

Not using a problamatic Oldsmobile engine in a Chevrolet car which is leading to the eventual death of mine.
