Subject: Next Big Step for me...... NG900 cse


Well guys & gals, I found a 1996 NG900 and I think it'll be our next 2nd car. The wife likes the color! (and the way it drives too) :) Drove it for a few miles this past weekend and it drives like new. It's a 2.0 Turbo, 4-door (really 5-door) with an automatic. It has 160k miles on it (but looks and drives like 50k.) The automatic is the only thing that gives me hesitation. I've had an auto in a C900 and I hated it. Powerless and expensive to repair. This one felt much different. More power, seemed to drive well and I really liked the interior layout of the car. I even found a CUP HOLDER! :) My question is: are the NG auto's lots better / more reliable than the C900 automatics were? The car has had regular maintenance and oil changes. Belts and pulleys look good. Suspension feels tight. Interior is nice and clean. A silly question - Did they put the 2.3 ltr in the NG 900's or was it a 9000 only option? Thanks for all the good info that this group puts out! \ Mike Teeples / Salt Lake City, Utah '96 CSE NG900 - 160k - soon to be part of family '90 SPG - 150k miles '87 Turbo - 187k miles - retired '85 Turbo - 278+k miles - RIP
