I am selling my 92 VX. Here is some info about it. Not sure what it is worth. Was going to put it on E-Bay but wanted to see what it is worrh on here or if any one wants to make me an offer. I live in IL right outside ST Louis MO
I bought the car March 05. It has the original rims on it and it has not been modified like many others. It had 175000 miles when I bought it. The only change I made to it was welded a 2 in receiver hitch under the rear end. I used that for a Bike rack and basket to carry cargo.
? Oct 05 New upper control arms
? June 06 New distributor
? Jan 07 Replaced bad O2 sensor
? June 07 Replaced Transmission with salvaged 94
? Mar 08 New tires
? Gets 45 MPG (Your mileage may vary based on driving style. I drive very conservatively)
? Runs great burns no oil
? No fluid leaks.
? Sunroof does not leak.
? Spare Ball Joints and Tie Rod ends
? Brakes are good all the way around. Have been replace but not sure when I did it.
? Cracked windshield. Has been that way since I bought it. It runs down from the roof to the mirror then goes left and right across the window almost all the way across. I indicated the crack in black on the picture below.
? Starting to rust around rear wheel wells.
? 230000 miles.
? AC does not work. Stopped last summer. Has a leak someplace.
? Rear window will not prop open. Needs new struts. One of the struts has also fallen off the window.
? Seems to be a lot of road noise coming from the rear. I think it may need bushing or something. Does not affect drivability.
? Shift light comes on when in 5th gear like it wants you to shift to 6th gear. This started when I replaced the Transmission.
? Passenger side mirror does not adjust with inside lever.
? The driver?s seat had a hole in it. I patched it with a piece of gray leather. See pictures. Attachment 1541

Any chance that the replacement transmission has a 4.250 (paired with the D16Z6) or 4.058 (D15B7) final drive instead of the VX-stock 3.250 (also used with the CX's D15B8)? 45 MPG sounds low for a conservatively driven VX, and, if it's true that the ECU determines what gear it is in from a ratio of the VSS and Tach sensor signals, then a shorter geared transmission would have the engine RPMs higher at any given speed and could lead a VX ECU to wrongly believe that it is in a lower gear.
