I just bought one of these used. It is a 1997. It is in great shape body-wise and seems to drive great. My air bag light is on. I need to get that checked. One of my headlights is also out which we are supposed to have fixed in a couple days. My real concern is the fact that we had it hooked up to a diagnostic reader today and there are some codes showing for the transmission. It probably isn't anything serious or we could tell when shifting but I am so worried about it. I thought I was getting a deal for $3000 but now I am considering trying to sell it or trade it back in because I may be about to encounter too many problems so I have heard from other owners of these same cars. Anyway, when I bought the car I quickly got an oil change and they added 10W30 oil in it. If you have over 100000 miles you may want to go for a high-milage oil though. Mine has 80000 miles on it. How is yours driving? Are you happy with it or sorry you bought it? I am really curious. I hope I did not make a mistake.
