I heard that the tranny's in 2.3 turbo's and Aero's are no true examples of longevity. Kickdowns in these cars might be a profound torture for these automatics. IMHO an Aero asks for a manual gearbox. Otherwise, if well cared for, the 200.000 kms seem no big issue to me. Take a look at the constant velocity joints, try all the electronic goodies, and be sure the AC is still alive. friendly greetings, Gupgo '92 9000 CS 2.3 turbo (manual ;-)
