1989 Pontiac 6000 LE 2.8 from North America
A reliable comfortable driving appliance
Caliper seized after sitting too long. Replaced it myself, cost $20 for a rebuilt caliper.
Ignition module failed at 106000 km. Cost $300 cdn.
Lifter collapse after running light oil on a very hot day (no damage).
Air conditioner compressor seized (after attempted repair)
Undetectable voltage drain.
Cheap car to buy, cheap to own, cheap to fix (except for computer stuff).
It had great gas mileage... don't know what happened. Its now average.
Accelerates good, brakes good, handles well if you remember what type of car it is.
Very comfortable. Great for commuting, or as the foul weather car. Strong driveline, suspension, chassis, etc. Overall good car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Update: 142,000 kms, no major repairs other than wear items. Has a external head gasket coolant leak (for the past 30,000 or so kms) that drips onto the coilpack, causing a misfire eventually. Rust is starting to take over. I just had a PS line blow, due to a rusty line and Canadian winters (cheap to fix).
