Been there, done that As for their electrical components, they are pretty much junks. Example their MAF and ECU's. All problems with their cars can relate back to a electrical system malfuntion. Can't seem to figure out why companies still buy their shit. BTW, their TV's are pretty good. My family had one that lasted 15 years. I split it apart, and voula, Mitsu Electronics everywhere.boost_boy said:They sell all their asses electrical components I think they are very smart! And true indeed, forget about that timing belt or don't change the tensioner when changing the belt and you are in for an expensive engine failure.
tsi200sx said:I have several acquaintences with current-generation (95 and up) Cavaliers. Nothing but problems with virtually every part of the car you can think of from the engine to the body to the interior. Poor engineering, shoddy workmanship, plain and simple. Typical of current GM products. Almost everyone I know who owns a late-model GM, be it a Pontiac Grand Prix or a Chevy S10, has had huge problems with it. Their automatic transmissions are particularly awful.
Thanks for the comment on my car. Yeah, the V6 model is pretty rare, they only made it in 87 and 88, about 5000 cars each year, offered in the U.S. market only. Canada didn't even get them. I have a pretty extensive website devoted to the 200SX SE V6, the link is in my sig.
Can I please bitch slap the newbie??? What the hell is he talking about. I take it is that all other cars besides Skylines don't matter.nissan_lover_fla_954 said:**** all these other cars its all about SKYLINES!!!~!!!!!!!!!
