I had a 91' 2.3 that I bought in 99' with 60k miles and all records. Paid $10k for it!(ugh) Problem was it had major A/C problems(typical) after I bought it and it was slow from a stop.

I had a hard time reselling it due to the fact people thought something was wrong with it when stepping on the gas. NO POWER! When it gets rolling it is fine though. It will cruise all day at 80 and 85mph or better.

I only got $6k for it when I sold it because the paint had started to fade the day after I bought it and the A/C was gone. However I wish I still had it sometimes!

Next time I will find a nice 92' or 93' 2.6. Much smoother and quicker ride. It is not super fast but it will hit the road right!

I hace an 85 190 2.3 with 150k that I bought with a bad tranny. I hope to get it up and going soon. I only gave $800 for this one.

Good luck!
