"I just got done cold starting my 92 white trofeo after it had been sitting in a garage for over a year. This thing was passed down to me and has seen more abuse than I care for :( But even when it was 20 degree's out, this thing took a matter of I would literally say 2 seconds to fire up. This car has many advanced features (for it's time anyway) and most of them are still working relentlessly. This truly is a rare, American built car."
"Wife's car bought Oct,1990 with 10850 miles. Great riding car, great mileage (20 around town, 25 on trip) according to internal cpr info. Driven mostly on occasional trips: now driven regularly for short trips during last 7 years."
"We've owned three Trefeo's thus far. All with the VIC touchscreen and the telephone system. These cars are wonderful to drive.
Nice and tight. The 3.8 V6 is bullet proof, and the seats are the most comfortable I've seen. The only weak link is the transmission. I've had two to fail on me, although they both had well over 100,000 miles, the fluid and filters were replaced at regular intervals. I've always gone up to the next size tire P225/60R16. car seems to handle and ride better, even though the ride is excellent. Car averages 20 mpg in the city, 26 on the road. The best thing is the sound of the exhaust system! Always gets thumbs up!"
"This is the best vehicle I have ever owned! After driving this car for 18 years, there is no rust (even though I live in Michigan) on the original paint, and have only had to minor mechanical repairs. However, now that it is so old, it is getting some leaks in the sunroof, so the windows stay fogged up. I am going to donate this car to charity as I no longer have room for two vehicls. Sad to say though, I refuse to buy another GM vehicle. I also own a 2004 Buick and 2002 Chevy, and they have been nothing but trouble."
"I have a '92 Trofeo I bought in '95 with 97k miles on it in excellent condition. In the near 14 years I have owned this car, I have only spent $2500 in all repairs (not including oil changes every 7-10000 miles). This car is a tank and it now has 340,000 miles on it and still runs great! It will be retiring for parts soon as I recently wrecked it and many electrical parts have started failing.
The only problem with these vehicles is the A/C. They tend to go out within 5 years of new and need full replacement. I can deal with this. Mechanically and physically, they are phenomenal cars! Best purchase I ever made!"
