1986 Chevrolet Caprice 4.3 from North America
Generally was a very good car and was still running reasonably well when I sold it
Fuel line failure circa 195000 kilometres (with major fuel leakage).
Suspension problems (springs/shocks) at 100000 kilometres.
Some rust (quarter panel)
Paint problems (fading)
Started to use some oil after 100000 kilometres
Comfortable bench seats.
Quiet and comfortable ride.
Lots of room in front and back seats.
Powerful heating, air conditioning and window clearing.
Sufficient power for highway driving and passing.
Vague power steering.
Mediocre gas mileage even with the 6 cylinder engine.
Transmission was a bit temperamental (slow to up shift) but I did not invest in a repair.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
