Summary:

Whoever ends up buying my car, when I do decide to sell it, got a deal!

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong with the vehicle that is not regular wear and tear for a vehicle of its age.

General Comments:

The car is extremely reliable.

I would recommend picking up a used one in a heartbeat. Repair costs can be a bit expensive, but things just seem to last on it so it is rare that you need to take it to the shop.

It performs well for the price and the size of the engine. (obviously not a hot rod, but has pep.)

Space is more than adequate and it's even comfortable with four guys driving across the country in it. (60 hours straight.)

My car is high mileage and starting to rust, but I wouldn't hesitate to drive it across the country again.

Overall this car deserves a ten.

Previous carOldsmobile Firenza

Summary:

More than justifies the price I paid for it

Faults:

Replaced front struts.

Replaced battery (having to cope with Canadian climate, I never use a battery longer than three winters)

On my third set of brake pads. Just last week replaced rotors.

Regular maintenance and oil/filter changes.

General Comments:

A dependable vehicle. Never yet failed to start, even when I forget to plug in the block heater on minus 30 degree nights.

Firm ride, handles like a sports car, plenty of zip.

For me, the Stylus has been a good investment. Acquired for Can$3800 at an auction in December 1994, I should say that it has been money well spent.

General Comments:

This is an excellent first car. It is small, easy to maneuver, especially for a new driver. It is also extremely rare and very cool looking. Although there were some minor problems, I got my car very cheap- $1500. And it is extremely reliable- I haven't had any major problems at all.
