This is the follow up to the last survey I took. When I bought this car the only thing I had in mind was going fast. The last vehicle I had was a '98 Monte Carlo Z34 with the same 3.8 liter V6.I wanted something faster, but also similar. Since I took the last survey the car's pretty much been in the shop getting fixed the whole time!I crashed into a curb going about 15-20 mph in an E-Brake slide, which easily could have been avoided. But who can resist a good drift in the snow? ($3000 later) Then I blew my engine going approximately 110 mph, resulting in a blown head gasket. These engines get really hot, as you all know, but this could have been avoided if I was running a cooler thermostat, a 180 or 160 maybe. Don't beat on this car after driving it awhile and if the temp reads higher than usual. It could be pretty bad, my engine actually started on fire!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
