Summary:

Sweet, awesome, love it

Faults:

Trunk close motor broke. Cheap fix.

Transmission started to shift bad and the engine lost power. Replaced the tranny computer, didn't work, finally replaced the catalytic converter and it's like new!

Rear windows don't work.

A/C does not working.

Rust starting on the truck bottom corners and top left corner of windshield.

General Comments:

This car is super nice; comfortable with lots of space.

Lots of power, handles great. I've had it up to 140 a couple times.

Its looks are nice, even with all of the hail damage.

It will be hard to replace.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Are you sure your car is a 1982? They didn't have the Northstar V8's and the speedometer only went up to 85mph back in the early 1980s.
