I'm in need of a car for commuting back and forth from school. I am really interested in a 1988 Pontiac Fiero. I found one that has about 213k on it. Everything is in working order and maintenance has been kept routinely. What else should I look at before purchasing it? Anything in particular for this Fiero? What is a MAJOR aspect that will either make or not make me purchase it?

I've owned several fieros over the last 15 years and am currently working the bugs out of my 88 N* swap.

What to look for:

1) overheating. Make sure you watch the car idle until the fan comes on and cools it back down.

2) Check the EGR tube. It usually is found to be bad and allows a vacuum leak causing a lean condition and high rpms at idle.

3) When was the last time the ignition module and the coil pick-up, both in the distributer, were replaced? If not in the last 3 years, you need to plan to buy them new and install them. they will leave you stranded eventually. Fix it and it will give you 8-10 years of good service.

Those are the things I'd identify for you.

Good luck!
