<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">these cars are total pieces of crap id stay away if i was youOriginally posted by Discord:
I'm debating on getting one of these as a project car of sorts. They can be had for under 4k in decent shape.
I can't find much in the way of specs on these things. Anyone know of any issues with these cars or where to find info on them?
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">the car is also plauged with chronic unsolvable electrical problems prone to cylinder head cracking. electronics that fall apart and dont work and generally crappy build quality , big piece of crap. ive owned one that my uncle bought since new put only 34k miles on it when i got it didnt last over 38k miles before it started smokingOriginally posted by familyman:
Only a few issues I can think of.
I think the big one is the timing chain. Something happens when it wears. It starts to get loose and hit something and wears through it and some sort of catastrophic failure happens.
The engine is also a 'truck motor' in every sense I hear. Long stroke, good torque, no chance to rev. Aftermarket parts are so scarce as to be non existant in the states.
Oh, and they rust like crazy.
I really like them though.
