and GXP for sale?!
Yeah, did you not see my for sale thread? My GXP has been for sale on here and will go for sale publicly tomorrow. I needed a car that'* better on gas, cheaper to insure, and less high class. I need to get my priorities straight and as much as I absolutely love this car, I have to sell it. I already bought a 2000 Regal GSE to replace it.

I can't imagine anything else can possibly go wrong with it since everything has pretty much been replaced with revised units that don't fail. I do wish I could keep it, but I need to save up for a house, pay off the small amount I still owe on it, and move on with my life.

It will be 3 years now I believe. Bought it with 45,800 miles, and it now has just short of 87k.

Its been intermittent. There was a long period of time when I had no problems at all. It seems that the problems start happening mostly in the winter. I know for a fact the hose leaks are due to the aluminum fittings expanding and contracting and eventually developing leaks due to the rapid change in temperatures.

It really sucks because I'd love to keep it now that all of the possible problems have been fixed and replaced with revised units. I'm sure it will be a very reliable car from here on out, but I already bought the Regal so this has to go.

Would I buy another one in the future when I get a better paying job and a house? You bet.
