Thanks all,
I bought my '94 with only 60K miles on it two years ago. Almost immediatly i had to replace the alternator, and later the entire ABS module went out, which is an expensive repair. (I'm still having problems with the ABS..those speed sensors on the wheels are hard to replace). Also the sunroof seal is the old split design, though there are instructions on this forum for replacing it with a new design singlepiece seal.

The above cost around $2400 to fix in the first year of owning my car. Other than that, however, i love the ride and of course these are classy-looking cars.
