Selling my 6 speed 1998 Trans Am Formula .. Body has 98,000 miles on it.. Engine was replaced in November 2012 (5.7L 350 LS1).
-Brand new battery, Water pump, Thermostat, all new seals and gaskets, New Rear Axle, T-Tops (don't leak), Power Windows and Seats, Aftermarket Pioneer CD/mp3/ipod player.


I purchased the car in August 2011 from a dealership. Car's A/C unit was already removed at purchase. The original engine blew a rod through the block 20 miles later. So the car was stored until the court case settled. I purchased the second engine in Septemeber 2012, but soon realized it had a defect, so under warranty, had that engine replaced with the engine in it now in November 2012. At time of installation the engine had 87,000 miles. I have all paperwork and receipts for parts and installation if needed. I would love to continue to rebuild this beast but have to move out of state for work soon. 

There are no issues regarding engine but these are all known repairs for the car:
-A/C (if needed)
-O2 Sensor (sluggish on a cold start)
-Power Steering Pump
-Set of Rims (rear driverside slighty bent from curb)
-Muffler (3in single In, Duel Out)
-Shocks
-headlight motor makes noise (fully functional though)
-Scrapes on driver side bumper
-driver side window (slight gap by the side mirror)

GM recalling another 2.7 million vehicles in five separate campaigns

Thu, 15 May 2014 09:57:00 EST

The recalls keep rolling in from General Motors, evidently keen to avoid repeating the mistakes of the ignition-switch debacle and clean house. This time they're all coming at once, with five separate recalls announced together covering approximately 2.7 million vehicles.
The largest of the five actions involves over 2.4 million units of the previous-generation Chevrolet Malibu and Malibu Maxx, Pontiac G6 and Saturn Aura in order to fix brake light wiring harness, which have been found to be susceptible to corrosion. The recall is separate from the 56k Aura sedans which GM recently recalled over faulty shift cables, not to mention the previous massive recall of 1.3 million vehicles - some of them the same models - but appears to have resulted from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation that started with the G6 almost a year ago.
The second-largest campaign involves the 2014 Chevy Malibu, specifically those fitted with GM's 2.5-liter engine and stop/start system, approximately 140,000 examples of which has been found to have problematic brakes. The issue does not appear to be connected to the recall of 8k Malibu and Buick LaCrosse sedans (also involving brake woes) which we reported upon last week. Four crashes have been reported in such models, but GM admits it's not yet clear if the problem was a contributing factor in the accidents.

NHTSA could add 1M cars to GM recall

Wed, 13 Mar 2013 09:12:00 EST


The Detroit Free Press is reporting that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration may expand a recall campaign for faulty brake lamps. The agency is currently looking into complaints that certain 2004-2011 Chevrolet Malibu models as well as some 2007-2009 Saturn Aura sedans may have brake lights that do not illuminate when the driver presses the pedal. Alternatively, the lamps may also illuminate without input from the driver. General Motors recalled 8,000 Pontiac G6 models from the 2005 model year for the same problem, and NHTSA is currently investigating whether to add 550,000 more G6 models built between 2005 and 2009 to the list for the same issue.
In addition, investigators are currently examining 97 complaints from Malibu and Aura owners with the same trouble. If NHTSA adds those models to the recall campaign, more than one million units could be covered. GM, meanwhile, says there have been no accidents or injuries as a result of the problem.

Lutz says GM was working on 5th-gen Pontiac GTO

Thu, 08 Aug 2013 08:45:00 EST

Bob Lutz was one of the forces behind bringing the Holden Monaro to the United States, as the ill-fated Pontiac GTO in 2004. And while that car received critical acclaim, it was a sales disappointment. Now, Road & Track is reporting that our suspicions were correct - Pontiac was working on a two-door, G8-based coupe before it was shuttered.
In that R&T article, which is no longer available online, Lutz explained that the new GTO would solve many of the issues found in the original. Car Advice speculates that the new model would have look like a rebadged version of the Holden Coupe 60 Concept from 2008, a conclusion we also came to.
That car would have been a big departure from the 2004 to 2006 GTO. It has an extremely long hood and short rear deck, with an almost fastback roofline and a wide greenhouse with a tall beltline. The wheel arches were very pronounced, and the chin and rocker panel splitters gave it a race-ready look. Would it have been enough to make the GTO work in the US? We think it might of, but it looks like we'll never know.
