So good

New rear suspension and whole brake system (discs, drums, pads, lines) at 155,000 km.

Had to change the thermostat and oxygen sensor every year.

General Comments:

One of the smoothest rides I've ever owned, so comfy, so good, oh man, oh man.

Had to sell it because life plays tricks on you sometimes.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

"Had to sell it because life plays tricks on you sometimes."?

What "trick" could possibly necessitate selling a 19 year old Chevy?

To the above poster - you've obviously never had to work for a living. Sometimes being poor drives us to unfortunate, desperate necessities, and the grand or two this fine old car could net could save a fellow from homelessness in an extremity.
