I have owned this car since 2002 and 80K miles. Now it has 184K. Those miles were between 2002 and 2005 when I had a long (92 miles one way) commute. I now am a consultant, so I am not home much and have put less than 2K on it since March 2005.
It runs and drives great. I have always kept it mechanically sound. I replaced the distributor when I first purchased it with the improved metal gear type. Timing belt was done at 160K with water pump and all typical timing belt items (although I cannot locate that receipt it was in 2004). In Jan 05 I replaced the starter. In Nov 05 (around 1500 miles ago) one of the front axles failed and at that time I had a complete suspension and brake service including calipers, cables, sway bar links, ball joints, control arm bushings, etc.
The vehicle has no modifications and has never been repainted. The only exception is the front bumper surround/airdam. I hit an animal with the car and ruined the original one. I bought a used piece from a red car. I painted it black, but it is not a professional job. The piece was far from perfect to begin with, but looks better than one from a sedan in my opinion.
19 Years of Accumulated Wear:
The drivers seat bolster is worn through and the passengers door has a crease from someone in a parking lot. The A/C died in the summer of 2006 but I have never had it looked at. I suspect the compressor clutch because it blew exceptionally cold for about 20 minutes then died suddenly. The cruise control has never worked.
This is a very solid original and unmodified coupe in great mechanical shape. There is no new paint or accessories hiding the age of this car. I would like to see this go to someone who knows about and appreciates these rare cars.
