-Ignition switch went out. I thought it was the starter at first, so I replaced the starter, then the ignition switch.
-New battery. It didn't have one when I bought it.
-New seats. Old ones were shot, so I got a complete new set of black leather ones from Pick-N-Pull. The were in perfect shape except for 1 tear along a seam. Plus it only cost me $25.00!
-Replaced the master cylinder at 180,000 miles. This was the killer, read below.
-There are a few cracks in the dash from the California sun, but nothing that's not easily fixable.
-normal oil and filter maintenance.
I bought the car from some guy who had to move it for $150.00. I put a new battery in it, started it up and drove away! I later found out it had a rare turbo system on it, so that made it even better!
This is an EXTREMELY fast car. With the turbo it really picks up and goes. I did some research and found out it was part of a package deal from the dealer and it also includes the front and rear sway bars and a front air dam. All in all, this car really hugs the road. This is a perfect example of a true autobahn raider. I love this car to death!
The only real problem I had with it was that about 6 months after I got it white smoke started to pour out of the exhaust whenever I stopped. I spent months trying to find the problem to no avail. Finally I decided to sell it, and one of the people looking at it knew what the problem was. It was simply one of the seals in the master cylinder went bad. It ended up dumping brake fluid directly into the intake manifold whenever I pressed on the brakes. So I replaced the master cylinder, and now we're back in business.
