it is usually a decent car performance wise and is not overly expensive to repair when needed as long as its nothing major such as transmission or engine replacement. which usually isnt needed unless it is a high mileage vehicle depending on how well it has ben maintained.

Beware the plastic intake manifold on these cars. It can be destroyed by EGR gases, allowing coolant to enter the intake tract. This can destroy the engine if it goes undetected.

Thumbs up

I'm with these guys. Repairs are average as it uses a 3.8 liter engine that every GM divison but Cadillac uses.

Knuckles is right on- about the intakes. Not un-common. The 96 models had a recall on them. Otherwise if you pay, could be well over 600 bucks to have repairs done. Otherwise a good car.
