You can get a better deal. I haggled a 2000 with 50k miles on it down to what your paying two years ago (before the market went to hell). I just didn't buy that one cause I smelled coolant in the exaust! These guys made a bad deal on the car and they are trying to get you to pay for it. Let it sit on their lot a while longer and they may come around.

It's obvious the car hasn't been on the road very much and has probably only been driven for a couple of miles at a time, not enough to even warm up the engine. I think you could be in for a disaster if that car all of a sudden has to work every day driving three times as many miles in a year. For that price you could buy something 3 years newer, and even though it might have twice the miles, it would probably last longer.



:bs:


Not obvious and you couldn't buy something better for the price, newer yes but not as good.

Someone probably overheated your engine once. That's all it takes.

I would keep walking on this car. It's 9 years old, I don't care how few miles it has. It's obvious the car hasn't been on the road very much and has probably only been driven for a couple of miles at a time, not enough to even warm up the engine.


Yes It has low miles, yes it sat more than it ever got drove but that is why the engine was completely overhauled. He has recepts, all gaskets were changed... Heads where checked for cracks and new seals put in, etc...

He has recepts totaling over $3500 in parts and machining...

I think I'm gonna keep the 99 but my list of things to fix keeps getting longer....
