1993 Chevrolet Caprice Base WagonReview
Happy Chevrolet Long Roof Owner —
These cars are really under rated, IMHO. Naturally, since it's a used car, there are some issues to be over come but nothing's come up so far that can't be repaired. When I took ownership, the rear gate doesn't lock, the two power windows on the rear doors need attention and the horn doesn't work. Since I don't have a garage to work in, I'll have to wait for good weather but none of it appears daunting in the least.I purchased a factory manual and it's one of the most helpful factory manuals I've ever owned, much better than what I had to work with on my '89 Caprice wagon. Update: Rear door/gate lock fixed by straightening out the actuating rod and adding a screw-on button. It's easily broken off when you're loading over the gate or when the gates down. L.R. window needed a switch and both rear windows needed the plastic insert in the window channel replaced; I found out this is a common repair on this year/make/model. If you decide to buy one of these, look for the models with the simple throttle body engines, 91-93. After that things get more complicated; more power and performance but not much better gas mileage and much more expensive maintenance.
Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)
Pros: This is a most capacious vehicle: with the back seats down, you can load a 4'X8' sheet of plywood in the back and close the door. It comes with an adjustable roof rack that will take 500lbs. It's a comfortable ride and even with 140,000 miles on the clock, gets better mpg than I would have had with a pick-up of the same year. I just completed a 3500 mile trip and I didn't loose a drop of the Mobile 1 I used at it's first oil change in my possession. This model is equipped with a throttle body Chevrolet 350 C.I. engine and even featured a factory engine oil cooler.
Cons: It was difficult to install a class III trailer hitch. Thin sheet metal keeps the weight down but is very easily dented. You've got to want to keep that enormous, sloping windshield cleaned; it's hard to get to the base of it on the inside.
1993 Chevrolet Caprice LTZReview
Last Of The Land Yachts. — Performance: Is decent it has a 305 V8 so it has power and gets reasonable MPG's. Its handling is very floaty like a boat so it's never dull. Build Quality: Is well typical GM from the 90's... crappy but it is simple to fix. Appearance: Jelly bean like and the interior is typical 90's material.But, its one of the best and most iconic cars from that era. Cost: Not bad u can find good cars cheap and chevy parts = cheap! MPG's about 20/25 if u don't beat it to death. Fun factor: It's not fun but its like going in the 70's car but from the 90's it the last of the land yachts!
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: It's a yacht and everybody notices you and there's tons of room for your stuff.
Cons: Typical Chevy build quality from the 90's it sucks.
