I purchased this car with only 50000 miles on it from the original owners, who were an older couple. They only drove the car to and from their son's school, and their son drove it when he was home from college. They had all maintenance records showing regular oil changes and upkeep.
The car drove like a dream and had no problems until the mileage hit 90,000. It is as if GM purposely designs their cars to disintegrate once they reach 100,000 miles!! That is when everything started breaking down, one by one.
First the window motor, alternator, EGR valve, fuel pump; then the spider injector died and they still didn't fix the fuel filter!!!
I cannot totally blame the mechanic, because mine is a very reputable and honest guy (I know - a rare thing these days). But he was honest with me, and told me these cars are notorious for the problems I had.
I have since fixed the fuel pump, and have decided this will be the LAST AMERICAN CAR I WILL EVER OWN. My friend drives a '97 Honda Accord with 164,000 miles on it, and aside from normal wear and tear, he has never had major issues with his car.
This just goes to show how American manufacturers continue to skimp on quality, and then wonder why consumers don't choose them anymore.
Sayonara American cars; my next will be a Honda.
