1995 Chevrolet Caprice Classic 9C1 5.7 D.F.I. from North America
Excellent for merging into traffic, nimble for it's size
Permanant Magnetic starter at 290000k.
Opti-spark replace caused misfire at 310000k.
Waterpump rear seal seepage caused opti-spark failure.
Broken bolt for exhaust manifold at RH head next to firewall. (Fun to get out!)
Front rotors warp prematurely, due to rear brakes not fully applying. Replaced rear rotors, pads, front rotors, bearings, pads, hoses, and Master cylinder.
ABS not working during winter months.
Corrosion found at single wire power feed connector for the ABS motor. Connector located below master cylinder.
I am very impressed by it's acceleration!
The fuel mileage is very good on the highway. On a 2400 mile highway trip between Edmonton, Alberta Canada, and Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, round trip was calculated at 26.5 mpg. Using premium gas.350-LT1 3:23 ratio.
On the downside, with the digital speedometer and the Tilt steering wheel in it's lowest position, the speedometer is completely obscured. I wonder if this was noticed in 1994 when this dashboard design was first introduced? Maybe that's why a the Camaro analog speedo display assembly fits right in there.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
