Summary:

Incredible car; more reliable than my 1998 Chevy Suburban

Faults:

Power steering pump and cap went out at about 204,000 miles. Easy to replace; took about an hour to replace. Bleeding took another 30 minutes.

Bought the pump re-manufactured at Checkers for $180.

Bypass valve replaced at 205000. Bought on ebay for $60.00 new. Easy to replace. Resolved the stalling problem I had.

If you do buy one of these cars, make sure to use Mobil 1 synthetic oil every 5000 miles.

General Comments:

Great car. Bought it for $2400 from a guy in Tucson. He took great care of it. The pearl white paint was perfect, did not even have any door dings in it. He even gave me a additional 12 oil filters with the car. He changed the oil with Mobil 1 synthetic oil every 5000 miles. Let's just say he took incredible care of it.

The car has 207000 miles on it and is still running great. These cars are sweet in the snow, nothing will beat it.

Very fast car, close to about 280 horsepower rocket (chipped). Incredible up the mountains!!

Only problem of late is that the boost is not like it used to be. Boost is about 1.6 bars; should be about 2.2 bars. Probably solenoid or k24 turbo going out.

Make sure to go for the 1991 20 valve, as these cars are the most reliable. They are rare, but can still be found!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
