I have found all of them except my first (87-9000) to be very reliable. There were a few years (around 89-90?) that I heard that morale was low (uncertain future) and there were more apt to be problems with assembly. GM bought in to them providing steady cash and other advantages. I'm currently driving a 97 900 SE Turbo and it's been great. Was delivered with a faulty turbo gauge which they replaced of course - now at 24,000 the only things it's needed are normal maintenance scheduled work and a wind whistle fixed. Rich Quindry
