The fiero is a great car. Have ya'll heard of the guy who installed two Suzuki Hyabusa 1300 cc (sport bike engine) in his Fiero GT?
Anyone think that $500.00 is reasonable to buy a fiero without a windshield, is the maintenance worth it.
Find out how much the windshield is worth. Then see how much the car would be worth if it was whole. If the $500 plus winshield price is close to whole price, then yes it seems okay.
But $500? Usually means other parts are beat. Not just a missing windshield.
I don't have a Fiero GT yet. But I love this car since years and next year is my turn. Fiero, here I come.
I have been driving my 87 GT from about three years now. I have put on about 24,000 miles in that time.
I drive it daily, and I have driven it on rather lengthy road trips. It does ride rather rough, but that is to be expected considering the type of car it is. The handling is indeed quite remarkable, the down side being that you can chew up a set of tires pretty quickly. On the upside again, if I keep it below 75 mph, my V6 routinely gets well over 30 mpg.
The problems I have had are :
1) The clutch cylinders. From reading other posts on this site, it would seem to be a common problem.
2) I also have had some trouble with the air conditioner, but that was relatively minor. I had an electrical switch that I had to replace. That cost less than $10 and took less than 10 minutes to replace.
3) I did have to replace the motor mounts, but that was my fault. Don't jack up just one back wheel unless you expect to break one. Obviously a very tight suspension.
The little car can be a bit annoying to work on. Things are really crammed into the small spaces. Once you figure out how you are supposed to get to part XYZ however, it makes sense and can be done easily enough. It helps that I bought the shop manual, so I can see how the engineers expected these cars to actually be worked on.
I just bought a 1987 fiero se 2.8 V6 it goes sweet, but I'm having either a overheating problem or a gauge malfunction can anyone help me email me at ASRracing14@yahoo.com.
