My eyes have been wandering lately while driving from Buick dealer to
dealer. I see painted windowsheilds across from Buick reading " 04
Towncar was $41,000 Now $33,000 " or " 04 DeVilles save $9- $12,000."
I've read your many posts & comments on the Northstar engine in the
past, but is there really all that much that goes wrong in say the first
5-6 years of ownership?
The hole blown in the side of the block by your buddy last week was not
a pretty picture. Better not happen to me !
I know the starter is buried under the intake and the altenator is damn
near scrapping the asphalt. Is a basic tune up, belt changes & tranny
oil changes easy to do? Hell is an engine oil change easy to do? LOL.
This may be to much beast for me to work on.
Are there any different problems between the engine in the DeVille &
DHS or the DTS. I know the DTS has 300 HP / 295 TQ vs. 275 HP & 300 TQ
in the other two models. Just wondering if the different models had
their own set of problems with said engine?
How reliable is the Electronic auto climate control unit in these cars?
Mother has a 91 Brougham and were on CC head unit # 3.
I saw a nice 05 supercharged Ultra today for $42,000. Gorgeous White
Opal with a Shale interior. Lotta $$$ for a V6. All the base Park
Avenues I see around here are loaded up eqaulling or topping out over
the price of the Ultra ( probably only in Chicago ).
Even the base Park, which starts at $35,555 is a lot of $$$ especially
for having the same engine you can get in a Impala for $13,000 less.
For $2000 more than the Ultra I can really go like hell in Caddy. (
Nobody say Buy a GTO if you want to go fast, ie. D Smith ).
If Enterprise Car Rental ain't asking a Queens Ransom for rent, I may
rent one for a couple of days next week for my birthday present.
