Very reliable and longlasting if properly taken care of (Try to beat my mileage someone I dare you)
1998- Fuel Injection replaced
?-air conditioning stops working
Horrible paint job, It's rusting a lot
2001- muffler replaced
Ceiling fell down, eventually I just ripped it all down
Linkage always slipped and I couldn't shift into park, which meant I had start it in Neutral and always had to have the parking brake on when I parked.
2002- transmission went out (caused death of the Celebrity : () It was given away to a local mechanic.
This was a very reliable car. I enjoyed it. It was my first car and I liked it much better than my current car, which is an 1989 Ford Tempo.
The biggest problem was the linkage slipping. The only way I could put it into park was by reaching under the hood and manually doing it. Big problem at times.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
