Previous carChevrolet Camaro

Summary:

Build it again!

Faults:

Powers steering pump changed.

Stock muffler changed; it was so clogged, small pieces of coal would come out of it.

Driver's seat a bit worn out.

Some minor electrical issues like brake lights and emergency lights.

General Comments:

Very reliable vehicle.

Gives good MPG.

I take it off roading, not that deep into mud, for fishing.

It's got a good driver's point of view for blind spots.

It's a bit underpowered, but suffices for its purpose.

I still have this vehicle, and I doubt I'll be getting rid of it anytime soon.

A/C and heater work great, and I'm fond of the simplicity of the dashboard and gauges.

85% of the interior is still in semi new condition. The other 15% is just normal wear and tear.

I love the exhaust sound it gives off as it's shifting gears; it's not loud, but it's still sounding strong and firm.

No rust, and a solid frame and body.

Summary:

A Toyota style buy back would be a great idea with this one

Faults:

DO NOT BUY.

Frame is completely rusted through and is not safe to drive.

Now I have a car I can't drive, it could break in half literally. It's junk.

General Comments:

Other than rusted frame; a reliable, solid feeling truck.

It runs drives and shifts like a new car, but cheap steel means a rusty mess and an unsafe truck.

This is a shame, because I am in love with the look and feel of it, and I can't drive it.

The seats are a little uncomfortable after a while.

Previous carChevrolet S-10

Faults:

- Had to replace fuel pump

- Center console broke

- Think it may have an oil leak now :(

- Rust in the rockers and under rear seats seems to be expanding exponentially (which I would attribute to the wonderful PA winter roads)

- Power steering leak

- Brakes squeak

- Inaccurate speedometer/odometer

- Rear lift gate struts failed

General Comments:

It's an excellent running vehicle, and fairly reliable. I haven't had a problem since getting the fuel pump replaced several months ago.

Has an undeniably large turning radius, but really seems to be a bit underpowered as SUVs go, but it seems to be on par with an Explorer of the same year. Haven't really been able to get an accurate mpg calculation because of an overly optimistic speedometer (claims speeds 10-14mph faster than reality).

Would consider buying another one.

The best out there

It rides nice, has enough power for me, more than most other SUV's in 1992.

Summary:

Best Car money I Ever Spent

Faults:

I bought this car new. I have had no problems for 137,500 miles. I have replaced the brakes once and the tires several times. I have all the recommended maintinance done. The car runs perfect. I still have the original clutch and I am finally going to replace the shocks. THIS IS THE BEST CAR I HAVE EVER OWNED. I know it's dull looking and a little underpowered,but it just keeps going. I will keep it until it dies or I do.

General Comments:

This is my third Nissan I am hooked on Nissan
