The most outstanding car I've ever driven
Thus far, the major thing that has "gone wrong" is the oxygen sensor. However, maintenance on a car of this age should be expected as part of the package. The only other problem observed is a fluctuating speedometer, which we are still trying to diagnose/fix. A major tuneup is in the offing, again a part of standard maintenance.
Goes like stink! Handles fabulously. Turns only the really observant heads because it carries subtlety to a screaming extreme. (No V-8 badges, only an understated "quattro" woven into the rear window deicer. Etc.) I have owned many odd and delightful cars (New BMW in 1968, current others include 1989 Merkur and 1976 Cordoba) but this is not (a) the most outstanding car I've ever owned and even (b) the most outstanding car I've ever driven. By the way, did I mention I love this car?
The 1990 also is the only one of these great V-8's that DOES NOT have the electronic speed governor that holds the later ones down to 135 mph. (Handy if you need to get across eastern Montana and right now!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
