250,000 kilometers or for you american folks 155343 miles.... I paid $1300 Canadian.

The only thing wrong at the moment is a power steering leak.....a leak in my brakes somewhere and a noisy moon roof when Im driving.....I fixed the moon roof today....no more whistling....as for the brakes....I can still stop.......but it takes a long while...and the power steering is just the return hose that was not properly clamped

I had the same problems with the brakes.. mine was a rusted through line out back. It wasn't that hard to fix, however if other things needed replacing it would get much more difficult. It'* kind of hard to explain, however I have a huge thread on here.. the TEVES brake system is about as logical as Machine code.. so it takes quite a bit of time to understand, and a good Factory Service Manual .

yah well at least it still stops without the full power brakes......I hope its nothing serious......I have to give myself alot of room to stop......and the power steering...well the leak is up on the drivers side....I guess its the return line from what Pontiac tells me. I have a question..........the mushroom lookin thing by the master cylinder....is that the EGR valve??? and if so.....what does it take to clean the thing? I remember seeing it but I cant find the post....if any one can help it would be great....I think its the EGR valve thats what pontiac said it was from my description of it.....I got the gasket so I can take it off.....I just wanna know how to clean it,
