1986 Pontiac 6000 LE 1.6
Awesome - Reliable and easy to maintain
I had to replace the battery (though I doubt it's ever been changed due to the fact it was owned by an elderly lady who never drove the car).
Replaced the starter.
The wires in the windows must of been severed from opening/shutting the door, since the windows stopped working until I sautered them together again.
It made some clunking noise when put into reverse/drive occasionally. Though I've never seen it cause a problem -- I assume it's cause I don't let it idle down enough sometimes...
I replaced the muffler.
A/C doesn't work (need to change the system over)
Overall, this car has been great with little up keep, and has cost me very little. Just had to do the general maintenance
This car may not have tons of power, but it sure is reliable.
It was my first car and I really am glad it was, because the 2 years that I've had it so far have been good. Very cost efficient.
I almost don't want to sell it and just keep it for backup, because I feel it will run forever.
It is also comfy and good on gas. I generally get about 285 miles on a 14 gallon tank (Minus the winter... I get less then)
I definitely recommend this car!!! Especially if you want a worry free car... esp. for your teenager.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
