Summary:

Nice and reliable

Faults:

• Head gasket - Dealer wanted $550 to fix it do I got the kit ($70) and did it myself, machined the head flat ($80). $150 Total + 1.5 hours.

• Rad leak, had a rad place fix ($230)

• Gas tank strap ($50)

• Tires ($350)

This summer i'll have to work on tranny and brakes.

EST $250.

I paid $1500 for the car, its been great for that amount of money, works good and very reliable.

General Comments:

The stability of the car is rather lacking, when braking the front of the car pulls to the left not sure if there is a brake issue or wheel bearing or what the problem is, will be lookin into that this summer.

It has good pick up, tranny is a big jumpy, but that's to be expected the way I drive.

Great space in the car perfect for 4 and alright for 5 people. Trunk room is amazing, and seats are great too.

Good car all around.

Next car I want a little more power and needs to be a bit newer.

Summary:

It got me where I had to go most of the time, but it wasn't always a pleasant journey

Faults:

Never again.

Bought a 1992 Sundance America in 1994, used. Shortly thereafter the head gasket blew (less than 30,000 miles). The dealer fixed. After another thirty thousand or so miles, head gasket blew again. I paid to fix. Now at 98,000 it's on its third head gasket.

I took it to a car wash the first month of ownership and the paint started peeling off hood and top immediately. Dealer said they would not fix for free -- would only "split" the cost with me. Still peeling, now rusting.

It also had three sets of brakes, tires, muffler systems.

I also recently discovered that it has huge rust hole in trunk. How it got enough water in there to cause this I still don't know.

Using the cigarette lighter causes rear signal light to fail. I replaced this three times before I realized the connection.

The windshield washer system never seemed to operate properly. Often will not send out fluid even when plenty there.

General Comments:

This car has had too many peculiar problems that the manufacturer has failed to address to my knowledge. Three head gaskets is too much and the paint problem was not supported by the manufacturer.

To be fair, it has good pick up, usually (seems to deal badly with humidity), air conditioning still works fine, and seats are very comfortable.

Summary:

I loved it and don't want to part with it

Faults:

The car still has the original emergency brake, clutch, transmission, engine, ignition, but the engine failed at 310,000 miles. It was a fantastic car and I wish I could afford to replace the engine. This car was excellent, other than regular maintenance, nothing was ever needed.

General Comments:

This car got good gas mileage and could pass anything, even going uphill. I really thought it would make 350,000 to 400,000 miles. Fantastic is the only word I can think of to describe this car. I loved it and still do.
