Just got back from looking at it. It is very clean. The body is in excellent condition and he pointed out the two imperfections on the body which he said he told you about and I could not find any others. Both of the ones he pointed out could be removed with the paintless dent repair, although one has a small scratch with it (one on the trunk) but it is nothing major. Front and rear bumpers are in excellent condition as far as I could see with no cracks or scuffs (didn't get a chance to look under them though)
The motor looked clean as well and i did not see any oil where they normally pool up, although I was losing light at that point, so I didn't get a good detailed look (left my flashlight in binghamton) The fluids were good (didn't check oil cause I had already started it) and the engine sounded great (better than my lumina).
The interior was in good shape as well. The driver'* seat had some wear on it, but nothing out of the ordinary for a car that age. The passenger seat the had the age wrinkles like all leather gets. The glove box latch is cracked, which I believe he told you. He said it was like that when he got it. I might have one here and if you want to stop over with the car after you purchase it we'll see if I got one that matches and if I do, $10 and it'* yours. Nothing else in the interior was broken that I saw except there was no center cup holder, which is common in these cars. No HUD, Power Driver only, but did have TC, ECC, 7-band CD, sunroof etc.
I drove the car about 2 miles and it drove great. Rode straight down the road, and didn't make any noise when turning. The brakes seemed to stop well and he said they only had about 10-11K on them. The tires were decent. The fronts have maybe another year on them but the backs have a good deal left. You could rotate them and be good for 2-3 years I believe. They wore evenly from what I could see.
My personnal opinion on this car is that it is worth the money. I would check the oil and the fluids again when you got there since it was kinda dark when I did, but I would say it is well worth the money. If I had saw this car, I would be trying to purchase it to replace my lumina.
If you would like to crash at my place you are welcome to. I am not sure what your plans are for the trip. It is very easy to get to his place from mine as well. If you would like to, then give me a call and I will get you directions. Hope this helps. I think you are getting a good deal on the car.
