not to scare you but ill mention this...
My 2001 SE right, that cost me $6500 (uncles body shop cost, it listed for $8000) with 90,000 miles. Major repairs if you can consider them major... Front trans mount @ 96,000 miles this week the rest of the mounts will be changed...long story.
New wheel hubs, rotors, some cosmetic fixer uppers (like the hood) and the intermediate shaft. oh yeah, cant forget about the intake manifolds.
for the SSEi... id say it might be a good deal. Take it on the highway and floor it, see how she performs. be sure the rotors dont need replacing too.
theyre reliable cars once they are maintained correctly.
