1987 Chevrolet Celebrity Eurosport 2.5 Liter V6 from North America
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

The title of your review says to try and beat your mileage... I don't have a celebrity story to beat it with personally, but I saw another review in this forum that had over 600,000 km! Still, 536,000 or so km is damn impressive for ANY car!

I also have the same car and had to tear my roof down as well. So far its still hanging in, but I may have to replace the CV joints soon, along with the exhaust system.

I have a 1987 Chevy Celeb with only 96,000 miles on it. Beat that.

I have a Chev Celebrity wagon with V-6. It has 91,000, everything original, and everything works great.
