Although I have had a few problems with my 88, I would not trade it in, I love it!!!!!
Harmonic balancer - A lot of people actually thought the engine was knocking (professionals).
It also led me to change:
Transmission was going bad; since I had the money at the time, I bought a brand new one.
Brand new radiator.
Alternator (several), which I later found out was from a bad computer chip.
All new wires, spark plugs.
Now most recently my air conditioning has gone out... mechanic says bearings have gone bad in my compressor.
When I got the A/C filled with freon.. After turning the car off, the A/C was still blowing. Now my relay is gone bad. Had to bypass the A/C and get a shorter belt.
I love my gold '94 88. It was my first car. I'm a female and I just love the handling of this big car. The car rides smooth as hell, and even though gas is high, it's still reasonable to fill up.
The leather seats are almost like brand new. I only wish I could get a fresh paint job. I think it's smooth as hell and gangsta.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
