Awesome find, one owner, well cared for, running good, but had little rust at the doors and tailgate, replaced a leaky steering rack seal, some of the front suspension bushings and the rear stabilizer bar links. This has been used as a family vehicle, to hit the road in comfort and style. It has taken us on the 1200 trek to NS twice, a number of times to TO, took us to North Bay and is used every time there is road to travel. It is comfortable, fast, extremely reliable and consistently returns 25 MPG

Looked nice, but with the 4 cylinder 1.8 and the automatic transmission, it felt much like a land yatch. I later learned that it is the 4L30 transmission that spoils the performance. I sold this car and missed riding with the top down until I found the next one.

Came with a warped, pitted cylinder head, which was replaced with a freshly rebuilt M52 head. Engine is running like a Swiss watch now. The rear window was also replaced. Door cards were replaced as well and a pair of E46 sport power seats were installed. Rustless body, also required a replacement muffler. The automatic transmission will be replaced with a getrag 5 speed later this season. It is still a work in progress

Gone, but not forgotten. Was found half way dead, with issues with secondary air injection system, codes would not clear after all components were replaced. Turned out to be clogged air passages in the heads, which were re-opened with injections of oven cleaner, then engine was flushed with injections of water in the intake manifold. The process took weeks and repeated applications were required, but it worked! Powertrain felt very good after the flush, car was clean inside, fair outside.
