The transmission operating in Powerglide mode is the infamous shift solenoid problem that plauges a good number of 1995s. The solution is a new transmission solenoid, which is about $60-80 and 1.5-2hrs if you do it yourself. Its apparently not super hard and there's even a write-up on what to do...


169k isn't a huge deal on these cars. Mine is up to 131k and as I've mentioned before, one of ACNA's members got up to 310k before he finally gave it up and his was a '95. The cosmetic stuff is your call but again likely not a big issue. If all the power equipment works and it isn't throwing off any other weird codes, its a good buy, especially if you dicker down to $800.

And if you do end up buying it, I hate you because I want a sunroof and a Bose Acoustimass system.

Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.

Buy it! :)

Trust me, I'd love to have it now. But I'm not going to buy it without having my mechanic give it a look, the ad seems honest enough, but you never know what else may be going on. The problem with that is time. The car is a couple of hours away, and I have next to no free time.
