More useful than a Hummer and better looking too.
The Transmission as a minor leak. I don't feel like fixing it though. I just have to add a quart every month or so.
The brakes failed due to a master cylinder leak. This resulted in my sister hitting a light pole at 15mph after coasting down a freeway overpass.
The car had minor body damage to the right-front quarter panel and the right-front door. The windshield was also cracked by the impact. Most modern cars would be totaled or not worth fixing by that kind of impact.
The last problem is due to the stupid mechanical choke that GM loved to put on their carburetors. This makes the car hard to start in the morning. Someday I will replace it with an electric one to solve this problem.
The car is a great hauler of people and cargo.
The suspension seems to be a little too soft for my tastes.
This car has the best looks and best performance of all full-size mid-70's sedans.
After the crash with the pole the police officer said it would run for another 30 years. I don't doubt it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
