Bought this car new put a ton of miles
on it still have it ..a special
edition, great car every where it goes
always attracts attention. Looks better
than 97 % of new cars with the finish
on this bad boy. LSC forever.
Bought this car from a friend who had
It garaged when not being driven. But
so far, no problems at all, I love
it. Me being a in my early 20's look
forward to saving up and buying the
new LS. Main problems: Had to
replace both power door locks, have
trouble with it overheating when hot
outside and standing still.
The cruise control went out within the
first year of ownership. The next item
was a tie rod end which was still
covered under the warranty. At 67,000
miles, the transmission had to be
overhauled. Also about the same time,
the alternator had to be replaced. At
110,000 miles, the automatic door
locking system had to be rebuilt. Over
the last two years, the airconditioning
system has cost me $600.00. More recent
repairs have involved replacing the
water pump and a leaky power steering
line, and replacing both front end tie
rod ends. Note that front end
alignments are a regular expense since
it chews up tires.
I love this car. I bought it in 2002 with 100,000 miles. I now have abour 120,000 miles. The things I love are the exterior styling, the road handling, the look I get from anyone that sees it. It is a black Special Edition LSC. It has the best stereo I have ever heard. It does not have a smooth ride, it has a badass ride!! I have had to do a little maintenance (it has 120,000 miles) but the motor and transmission is good. Most of the work has been brakes, shocks, air conditioner, relatively minor things. I consider it to be the least expensive vehicle I have ever owned, given the low maintenance expense. This is a fine car!! I can't imagine how another would turn me on any more!!
