Very good

1993 Chevrolet Caprice Station Wagon V8 from North America

Summary:

Great car for a large family

Faults:

Blower motor went out the day after I bought it.

General Comments:

The car drives very well for being 15 years old. The engine is quiet and it has no leaks.

The wagon is very roomy.

I was kind of nervous about buying a car so old. I traded in a 2000 Intrepid for it. I bought the Intrepid and had to turn it right back to the dealer because the mechanic said it need $5000 in repairs. I returned to the mechanic and he said the Caprice was a much better car. I've been told that this car would last forever.

I bought new a 1993 Chevrolet Caprice Station Wagon with the big V8 5.7 liter engine. I still drive it today with about 260,000+ miles.

It has been a GREAT car. Of course over the years I have had to do maintenance, but nothing out of the ordinary. It is old and needs more care than I am giving it, but it still drives wonderfully.

The most amazing feature is that it can turn a smaller circle that any car I have ever driven. No small car can't turn a tight a u-turn as this car.

I wish they still made them.

1993 Chevrolet Caprice classic 350 V8 from North America

Summary:

The Caprice Classic can take a lot of abuse

Faults:

When I first bought the car, I had a problems with it over heating.

The carpet was riped up.

Rust on the bottom of the back fenders.

When I bought the car there was no a/c.

There was a strong oil leak.

The car was very poor on gas mileage.

Gas gauge stopped working as I was coming home from work.

Rattling noises in the front right wheel.

General Comments:

The car was originally a police cruiser. then sold at the auction to the taxi company that my uncle works for. after about a year of the car being in service at the taxi company. they had to get rid of the car. so my uncle decided to buy the car for a very low price of only $200.

With no real use for the car. he sold it to me for $400. which I thought wasn't bad. he also told me he would help me fix it up, since he works on caprices for a living.

For the first couples days having the car I loved it, like a nerd would love a brand new computer. I cleaned it out, waxed it down, and even gave it a tune up. Having a ex-cop car was a dream for me. just driving to a friend's house, I felt like a B.A., but that was all soon going to end.

A week into driving the car, it started over heating. so I tryed to fix the problem. I flushed the radiator, got a new thermostat, and even a new fan. But the problem was only somewhat fixed. the car would over-heat after driving over a hour.

After that, there was only the problem of the oil leak, brakes and the rattling. the rattling was just a lose caliper, and the brake lines needed bleeding, also because of the ripped up carpet, one the of wires that went to the gas tank got cut. the wire was very easy to fix.

Other than that the car was a very smooth riding car, full of room, and so much trunk space I didn't know what to do with it. usually normal cars couldn't hold my 20" bike in the trunk, but with the caprice that was no problem. and with the hitch I was also able to put on a bike rack, if I was going the skate park with some friends.

With all the abuse this car was put through. I'm kind of shocked it still runs. even with 220,000 on the gauge it still gets me to work. and if it never dies on me, I'm going to keep driving it.
