Check with the seller to ensure that the recall work was completed on these items.

1992: Passenger-side airbag assembly in small number of cars was produced without igniter material, which would cause non-deployment or slow deployment in case of collision.

Trouble Spots
Check for these possible problems when test-driving and inspecting this vehicle.

Steering problems: Steering may be difficult during parking maneuvers due to a problem with the vehicle speed sensor in the power steering unit. (1991-94)
Steering problems: The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) tends to fail but a repair kit has been released so that the whole power steering assembly need not be replaced. (1991-94)
Steering noise: Telescopic steering columns may groan when the wheel is turned because there is not enough lubrication on the column.
Security alarm: The security alarm may not deactivate with the key in the driver's door, which sets off the alarm. Turning the key again may disarm it.
Poor transmission shift: Debris collects on the screen in the engine's air intake causing poor acceleration (all models) or lack of upshift (automatic transmission) at full throttle. (1991-94)
Engine noise: Carbon buildup on the piston rings may cause piston slap. The fix is to clean the carbon using GM Top Engine Cleaner sucked in by way of a vacuum port on the throttle body.
Cruise control: The cruise control may not engage on 1994 models due to a faulty actuator.
