    The care has been taken well care of, all metinence records are there, it runs very well, and the reason for sale is because their daughter got a new car for college (wealthier family i presume, because she got a brand new one) and the son doesn't want his sister's car so they got him one too xD.


    the rust shots are ALL the rust on the body...

    Umm, i'm going to test it out this weekend.


    Thoughts?


    EDIT: P.S. Blue-book is around $2,700 (good) - $2,300 (fair)

    Bit high on mileage but otherwise looks fine, but what am I saying, I don't know anything about cars.

    Looks good, 250,000 miles should be easy. Price could be brought down a bit for the miles though

    What do you guys think i should offer assuming it appears to work great?

    And as for the miles, i'm a HS student, so i'm not too worried about the high miles, as long as it runs well :p


    And Clutch, that's what my research said, around 300k miles :p


    Yea, i know it's not too good looking... i don't care too much :p

    The mileage is way too high. I would probably pay somewhere between $1K-$1.5K. Tho maybe I am wrong as I don't know much about cars. Bring an expert friend of yours when you do the test drive.

    I totally agree. The most I would pay for that would be 1.5k, and that would be pushing it for that many miles on it. ;)

    I'll keep that in mind for the possible negotiations.

    Any one else?

    I agree, 1-1.5k With that high of miles and the AC not working.
