    I will not post the link because I do not want to start a flame war there, but one of our club members bought a nice 1995 Continental and another person there is trying to claim he has seen 200 cars and every one of them burned massive amounts of oil and was a piece of junk. What are you comments on it?

    Supposedly northstars also need to have there coolant and tranny fluid changed often/regularly or they have problems. But if you do they run very reliably.
