Re: mechanic's inspection

I agree completely with Sean.

I had a trusted mechanic check my '94 90CSQ before I bought it from a
dealer this past July. The mechanic found several things, including 2 oil
leaks (head gasket, oil pan gasket). I brought these problems to the
dealer's attention, and they were fixed before I took delivery. It was
money well spent, in my opinion.

Sorry you had bad luck.
