Rear Axel needed to be replaced after sitting.

Very minor wiring problems after sitting.

Finally the horn gave out after 20 years the horn gave out.

Since it's has a V6 engine, it's fun to drive.

Faults:

There is rust on the front of the body. and there is also rust on the doors of the car to.

The cars struts seem to be bent or broke so the car kind of sits nose high. It leans back in to the air.

General Comments:

The car runs good and does not have much troble starting. It seems to be a very good and very reliable car, that can take me were I need it to go. The car does seem to have enough power to really make you go sometimes. that is if it is in a good mood. And also the heater in the car will work some times. If you hit a pothole it will start to work agian.

Great cars. I recently acquired my dads that he had for 5+ years. He used it to tote carpentry tools & supplies around, went 80k miles w/o changing the oil, and let it sit for 2 years. After a quick oil change and a jump start the car came right back up as if it was never sitting all!

These things never die!

Summary:

A crappy car, don't buy it unless you need a headache

Faults:

Needed new plugs and wires and alternator, and new head gasket when I bought it.

Had to rebuild the head twice (in 10,000 miles)

2nd gear on transmission went, never fixed.

New oil pump at 35,000 miles.

General Comments:

This car sucked, it was the most under-powered, un-reliable car I've ever driven in or known of. I bought this car with 28,000 miles, (yes, that's 28,000 miles) in 1998 from an old lady I know, she hadn't used it much since her husband died, hence the low, low mileage. I thought I was getting a great deal, 28,000 miles for $1800. Car was slow, many, many things broke, (many were little things that I fixed myself). Slowest car I ever driven, a Geo Metro 3-cylinder was MUCH quicker than my car.

It rode nice though, it was a comfortable car, as long as you didn't want to go fast.

Hi, my name is John. I had a 1984 Chevy Celebrity station wagon. I think it was the best car I have ever had. I bought it with 47,000 miles on it. I had it for 3 years. I put 67,000 miles on it (yes, 67,000 miles) The only things I had to do to it was, put brakes on it, and put 2 fuel pumps on it.

I have had a lot of cars in my life including 1996 Ford Taurus and 1993 Saturn Sl1. I liked my Celebrity more than any of these cars, in fact I`m looking for another one right now. Thank you for your time.
