1988 Pontiac LeMans from North America
Cheap, reliable transportation
Clutch went out.
Gearshift handle broke.
Firstly, my mechanic said my LeMans was the best he's ever worked on. It handled well - steering was tight.
Even tho' it threw an oil-plug and I ran it full-steam for an HOUR to get home one night (I had been running Dura-Lube - no problem) - it cranked back up the next morning and kept on going for another 2 years. This car made it across the U.S. TWICE, back and forth from Houston to Austin several times, and around in Houston for 2 years after that - and the car is now 13 years old (5/3/01)!!
I can't complain about "Pepe LeMans". The transmission just broke yesterday, but he had it coming! We may have a funeral for him...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
