I do plan to buy another very soon. I just need to find another that is a straight as my first one was.

I can't believe you people! This car sucks! I have one and can't wait till it dies, it is the ugliest thing I have ever laid eyes on, slow, transmission makes such bad sound when you shift into gears, that you think it's going to fall out. Honestly, I can't wait till the thing dies. I want to get a Chrysler minivan, get rid of the piece of crap.

I'm not really freaking out, but a few bad eggs doesn't make them all that way, yes, the clear was flaking on my car, but most 80's early 90's GM cars had that problem, and as for rust, mine had none. All I am saying is that the cars are great cars, if you know what you are doing, and with the proper care, can last a long time, not to mention, they make great sleeper cars, I dusted off that newer Taurus with no problem,if you don't like the car, fine, but you just didn't get one that was taken care of. Neither did I, however, the car is so easy to maintain, that I did not complain. If a car can be fun to drive, easy and cheap to maintain, and take a lot of abuse, why put them down?

I never owned a Celebrity, but let me say that as an outsider, I think those cars have sharp lines on them, especially if you ever saw one in good shape. They sure look better than the other bland cars they share the platform with.

I agree, but the 1990 Buick Century, which shares that platform, looks pretty good in two door form stock, but looks even better with what my roommate plans to do with his.

I have a "snot" green 4 door 2.5. It is gutless and noisy like a Diesel, the body and paint is rusted away; BUT is runs great and will not die. The only problems I have are minor that I can fix, but nothing worth trashing the car over. It is a simple design and a dependable car. I would highly recommend picking one up if you want a good beater car over its same era counterparts.

These cars will not die, I have ran mine so hard I can't believe that it still moves. Paint sucks on mine too, but does that really matter. They are supposed to be cheap and not stop.

I owned a 87 Eurosport as well. Worst car I have ever owned. So many things went wrong with it... after the front axle broke at 70mph...that was it. The 2.8L engine is one of the worst that ever came out of Detroit. Since then I only bought Buicks with the 3.8L engine.

I will never ever buy a Chevy again. Trust me I grew up loving Chevys. They "uses" to have some style... not anymore. I am from Flint, Mi. We love our GM's up there. Since Flint was Buick town... I have to say a Buick is a far better engineered vehicle.

If you are looking for an older Eurosport... might as well get a Pontiac 6000. Better built then the Chevy.

Has anyone had any experience with the Steering column coming loose on their EuroSport? I had to take mine in 3 times over this. I had one dealer quote me $300.00 to fix this. What a bunch of thieves.

Turns out I had another Dealer fix it. For about a $100.00 They had to tear down the steering column all they way down to the 4 bolts holding it in place. Basically tighten those and rebuild it back up. 3 times this happend. That is Chevy's for you. They USE to be a well made vehicle. not anymore. Slapped together junk!
