How much life is left in a '97 RS with V6/automatic adult driven in mostly
city conditions with occasional road trip with 85,000 miles on it? I'm
concerned with major issues such as timing belt/chain(?), transmission, etc.
life expectancy given history of like automobiles. Car has been maintained
with regular scheduled maintenance, but local mechanic says we're reaching
the point where major repairs could be imminent. Opinions?
It has a chain, so no worries. You are looking at more than double + the
current. I have seen them with 300K on them, with only standard
maintenance, that run great. GM is very well know for solid trannies.
Thank you. I searched through Google and didn't see much written on that
car, so I thought I would stop by here and ask the "Aficionados". It's been
a very dependable car to date, but thought I should research further to see
if there are any known "weak areas" to be aware of, and thus my visit here.
I appreciate your considerate and kind response.
