Fantastic car. Wish I could have kept it. Great power, fun to drive!

Cons

Rear brakes

This Car Was Fantastic All Around — I owned this car for 3 years (99-01). It was a Cutlass Ciera S model. It had a 3.8 liter V-6 with a sequential fuel injection system in it. The car moved! I bought it for $200 and had to replace the timing chain to get it running. I dumped a lot of parts and money into this car. Front end was completely rebuilt. I had an odd problem with the rear drum brakes locking up though. I had to get rid of it in 2001. It started rotting away from the salt on the roads here in the Northeast, plus we were starting a family and the 2-door just didn't cut it. Was sad to see it go..

Acceleration Sucks, But Handles Awesome, — acceleration sucks, but handles awesome, if i had new brake oads and rotors brakes would be awesome too.

Good Solid Car. — This was my second car, its the best american car I've ever owned. It was very spacious, had good power under the hood, mint condition overall. The old man that sold it to me kept this thing clean and well maintained.
