[b]$850 89 REATTA, 117k, rough but runs good, open to trades!!


Recommended Posts

Before you read on, I am open to trades for any interesting ride. Trades plus cash is an option too. Trade has to be worthy to be a daily driver.

So it is an 89 and it is my daily driver. I have owned it for 1 year and have 15k on it. Total milage is 117k. I put about 80miles on it during a work day. So you know it runs well and has received the maintenence required to keep it running everyday.

It isnt a show car and who knows how many owners there have been. It is <span style="font-weight: bold">rough</span>, no doubt.

I bought it to get a feel for the car before I sink money in to a perfect one. Personally I love the suspension/handling/16way seats. Surprisingly tight ride at 80 and I probibly will never drive another buick that I can throw madly into a turn!

I am sure there is some value in the original rims, intact glass, wheel caps, fully working driver seat and fully working dash. I have replaced the tires, fuel pump, ICM, and brake pads. Brake system was flushed when the rear right caliper was replaced.

Drive works fine, I shift to OD on the HWY and get an average of 23MGP on my daily commute. However OD does not work well with stop and go traffic. I dont think the trans is going out, but it definitly has some issues with OD.

New fuel pump and ICM at around 108k.

All glass intact

Signature Rims and caps intact

100% working touch screen

Engine runs well

Brakes work well

I am in Chicago IL
