1985 Pontiac 6000 STE 2.8 V6 from North America
Best car I've ever owned!
I had to replace my mass airflow sensor twice, but that was about the only problem I had with it.. a new alternator, rear shocks, ball joint, rear brakes.. that's it.. not bad for a daily driver that I had for about 5 years!! Best car I have ever owned!
Oh.. the AC condenser had a hole in it which I never fixed.
My poor baby! :-( On Oct 8th 2001 I had a major accident and totaled my 6000.. I was heartbroken! I went to the impound lot to look at it and just about cried!
Does anyone know where I could possibly buy another one of Pontiacs finest?? I loved this car!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Do not lose hope on finding another 6000STE. I have a 1985 STE, and have kept it since I bought it in 10/88, now with 300,000 on it. Recently, I bought another 1985 6000STE (11/07) in fairly good condition with 128,000 miles on it. So, buy another 6000/6000STE as a possible parts car to keep the car you really enjoy alive.

The info I read about the '85 STE's is great... I've had mine for 16 years and it only has 123,000..
I've replaced the steering rack, 3 mufflers, catalytic converter, alternator, water pump, fuel pump, ignition coil, rear shocks and radiator... AC stopped working in 1996. And the stock radio has a station drift issue.
All in All I still love this car with the fog lights, self-adjusting air shocks, and the performance towing package. The only issue is the digital speedometer tops out at 85mph. The car has plenty left in it at that point and I've cruised beyond 145 feet per second for extended periods...
Great ride. still alive.
