Considering the block was cracked the first 15 months I drove it! Yes, it was winter when I purchased and the trouble didn't show until a couple months in. My mechanic who had checked it and pronounced it impeccable and unblemished at the purchase now saw the engine block as irreparably cracked. But I d not want to abandon this baby. I put water in it every day, got a new fan, a little later new thermostat, new radiator when the unclog stuff I put in messed her up and still she drove - but not over 60. I just love the was she tells me which direction I am headed NW or S or WE and this gee whiz helps just so much! I adore how when going into a parking garage she lights up and tells me: 'Headlamps are suggested.' Somehow that is like having a personal valet right there in the car. It is like driving with champagne - which of course I wouldn't do. I would not consider having a vehicle this intelligent put out for scrap metal and so have had some guys put in a new engine. There are associated difficulties with their work - it caused electrical trouble which took out the cruise control, but I am on that (although I still need help) as why would I abandon this piece of art?
Powerful, excellent exterior styling for 4 door sedan, great interior layout for the time frame, indestructible NorthStar V8 engine (As long as you keep up with the proper Maintenance > and stay on the little glitches over time) 218783 miles and still going strong!!!
Del is very thorough and detailed oriented with helping you make the right decision that fits your needs.
Definitely a road cruiser

Great car for a road trip. Seats are very comfortable for the long haul. Lots of interior room. Color combination is great. Northstar engine is smooth. Not bad highway gas mileage for a car of this size.
