A good car that still performs like it's namesake!!
I have replaced the following parts on this model car, since purchase... also note that I drove the car at 225,000 miles from MI to AZ, one way:
Air Leveling system.
Sound System (Aftermarket, speakers on pass side blown)
Front and Rear wheel alignments.
4 new Goodyear tires.
CV boots, right and left side.
Front and rear brakes, also repaired parking brake sensor.
I have had numerous oil changes and oil supplements added for lube qualities, car tends to lose about 1 qt oil every 2500 miles, no oil leaks present. Valve covers were replaced and oil level sensor replaced.
Despite the money invested on keeping this car on the highway, the car in general has been very reliable.
Most repairs have been basic maintenance on a typical car with this amount of miles and years.
Surprisingly, the car has a perfect idle, shifts smoothly, and starts on a dime, even in the cold winter months.
The performance overall is semi-responsive, obviously not racing adequate, but the infamous downgraded HT 4100 has held it's own on successive occasions.
Gas mileage is near perfect, averaging 16-19/mpg in city and up to 26/mpg on the highway.
The body on the car is fair, a light metallic powder blue that when waxed, still shines as bright as a newer car.
The downfalls to owning this car: It's an 87, and with the years, the car has accumulated a lot of wear and tear.
Overall: Despite the age and miles, this has been one of my favorite and most comfortable cars to drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
