Wondering: I have had many cadillacs and drove them well over 250,000 miles. Still have 89 4.5 with 204,000 miles and never have replaced anything except smog pump and blower motor. Everything is original. Got 96 STS and replaced battery, taped up blower motor casing (cracked),:thepan::thepan: front wheel bearings, bushings in front end, EGR valve, Water pump and heater core. Must have been made in mexico with that 1.00 an hour help with no quality control. Anyone else having to replace parts sooner then later?
