It may be close to the end for my beloved 1998 Buick LeSabre. Its been having problems downshifting while going up hills and yesterday the check engine light illuminated. Its currently at the mechanic and I await their diagnostic report. If the repair is greater than a few hundred dollars, its not getting done. Instead I’ll invest that repair money into a new car and the Golden Cloud will be donated to charity.
I would be pretty sad to see it go. I’ve had the GC for 10 years which is almost 1/3 of my life. But it has served me well over the years and its time to move on.
