This is an attractive, quick, sporty car that requires time and care to keep it running properly.
Normal belts and hoses after nearly 20 years.
Digital thermometer on dash stopped working, then one day began again.
Glove box door would not close properly.
I purchased this car new in '91 for a great price (Even then the dealers didn't want them). I've always liked the looks of the Premier and the different grille and tail lights on the Limited added to the look.
After purchasing the car, various people I ran into asked me if I was insane, but after nearly 20 years and close to 275,000 miles, you tell me. The dealer even told me when I took it in for some regular maintenance, that I was damn lucky to have one of the few Premiers that did not require thousands of dollars of work.
The interior is comfortable and large enough for 5 adults and the engine has never let me down.
I will have to say that the transmission does shift rather harshly, but even that has never given out (and I am told that this is the major problem with these cars).
As long as you are good to your car from the beginning, your car will be good to you.
If I could find another Premier with low miles (though evidently, it doesn't matter) that I know has been well kept, I would definitely purchase another. (Or maybe three of them, so I can maybe build one good one?)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
