Wow 276,000 miles on the 3.8 V6 and still purrs, uses no oil, no ticking and full performance. I change the oil every 3,000 miles and add a bottle of Lucas oil stabilizer in place of one quart of oil at every change. Transmission original merely change fluids regularly at 50,000 mile intervals and use 1 bottle Lucas Transmission stop slip additive each change. Body holding up very well since it is all fberglass so no embarrasing rust. Bought this vehicle as a second owner with 36,000 miles and never ever regretted owning it. Here are the most major repairs I have had owning this vehice 1) replaced radiator with 100,000 miles 2) replaced numerous alternators 3) installed new brake pads more than I can remember 4) Installed new heater core at 170,000 miles 5) installed new wiper motor and blower motor at some point 6) Replace throttle position sensor numerous times 7) replaced water pump at least 3 times. Still considering the mileage I have recieved from this vehicle and it is still the most reliable vehicle I ever owned I would still drive it anywhere without reservation. They don't make em like this anymore!
