Re: [DML] Lauren R. makes the NY Times!

Sorry to hear you have been having so much trouble. I'm the third 
owner of mine, and have owned it for over three years with no 
problems whatsoever (knock on wood). There are owners that have had 
varied problems but correct them, and go on.
An important thing to keep in mind is that the auto's are over 25 yrs 
old, were only produced a couple of years and all the bugs had not 
been discovered and corrected as regular production cars.
If I may suggest, I would have a reputable shop (such as PJ Grady in 
NJ) take a good look at your car and make some recommendations. 
I also noticed in the picture that you may be needing some of the 
recall, and or recommended items installed (steel coolant bottle vs 
plastic, De-Ice kit with slash shield, etc)
Don't get too discouraged, these things happen. IMHO, the good times 
more than make up for the occasional grief.
