1991 Chevrolet Caprice 5.0 305 from North America
American craftsmanship at its finest
The water pump gave out at about 101000 miles. It cost me $45.00 and a six pack of beer to get it fixed.
Bought this car in 2001 and it has never given me too much grief. I reside in Minnesota, and while other car owners are having trouble starting their cars in the cold, my Caprice fires right up. It is one of the most underrated cars ever made in terms of quality and reliability. I was in a head on collision in this car, and while the other car was totaled, my Caprice started right up and I drove it home. The only issue I have with the Caprice is its not an Impala SS..
If you have the chance to buy one of these monsters, DO NOT HESITATE!!! It will be some of the best money you ever spend.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I'll attest to that, I bought a coupe version not knowing anything about Caprices and I love the car. The only other car I'd like to have as a second car would be a Camaro/Fire bird since I'm 21 but this thing is just fine. Great in the winter (rear wheel drive is predictable in snow) and so comfortable. I wouldn't trade it for anything else! It sure beats the competition, like the ugly Mercury Grand Marquis of the same era.

Hey, I have a Caprice too, and my only issue with it is that it's not a Corvette.
