I got the car at 230,000 miles, it had been in 3 accidents and had two heads put on it. The radio didn't work, only one headlight worked, clutch position sensor was faulty. It leaked a quart of oil a week and burned another half quart. The power steering leaked and the radiator was 80% clogged, and the cooling fan was shot. Spent over $2000 fixing the various problems listed above.
At 240,000 miles the belts shredded on me and alternator went out. Cost $150.00 to fix.
At 260,000 miles the number 2 and 3 intake and exhaust valves broke and required a third head to be put on it. Cost $550.00 parts and labor.
At 265,000 miles the upper power steering hose burst and caused an engine fire that required all new hoses, belts, battery, air intake system, power steering pump, reservior, hood, passenger side fender, and bumper.
Cost: $750.00 not including paint for the new body panels.
At 275,000 miles the radiator froze up, with antifreeze in it, and required a new radiator and hoses. Cost: $150.00 for used radiator and new hoses.
Currently at 280,000 miles there is a ticking from a collapsed valve-spring, the passenger side constant velocity joint is knocking at any speed over about 5 mph going straight or turning, and the radiator fan is barely working.
There are good points about this car however and those are why I keep putting money into it.
The car had a $800.00 custom dual exhaust system with racing mufflers and a Pacesetter header. It is very loud.
Also has a customized hatch with a Lex-an window and reinforced deck to handle the Wings West racing spoiler.
Has front and rear strut tower braces and a stronger anti-sway bar in the rear. Car has also been lowered 1.5 inches all around.
Interior is in decent shape for the high mileage.
