Is my 1994 GC Toast?

Greetings - I just picked up a 1994 GC Laredo. The car looked great, drove well, and was priced right so I went for it. Now I'm told by my mechanic that the front drive shaft has been removed and the car is only in 2 wheel drive. On top of that, when the car is cold it shifts poorly for the first few minutes. It gets better once the car is warmed up. Any theories why anyone would remove a drive shaft? And any inexpensive theories on what's up with my tranny. The car is a 6 cylinder w/124000 miles.
Thanks all.

There is a TSB for delayed shifting in cold weather for the first 1/4 mile after it sits for 8 hours or so that has them check the pressure and install some new seals for the governor drive. The dealer would have the details and I don't know what it would cost.

How long have you had the rig? I would head right back to the dealer. To me you have a valid reason to negate the deal as the vehicle is implied to be a 4x4 vehicle. Especially if it was ever stated, either on paper or verbally that it was 4x4. If it was a matter of it just not working then that might be different but if things have been removed making it impossible to do I think you have a valid case. It's possible the dealer would be just as surprised as you to find out it's not able to be put in 4wheel drive.

I would head on over and very constructively explain the situation and see how they react. You might be pleasently surprised or you might have to push you point.

Impulse eliminates planning ... that's a good thing
