They are great cars, but the ACC systems are marginal, prone to failure and expensive to fix. The rear suspension can eat you alive fixing clunks and a tendency to wander. And around 200K, the injection system can develop problems that no one except Steve B can diagnose and fix.

At least in the DC area, it is getting very hard to find shops that can fix them because the '86-88 models don't retain their fault codes. At $2100, I would bet it has one of these problems that someone doesn't want to spend the money to fix.
