if that is the case, I think I will have to pass on this car. There too many issues that I know of, and a number I am leery of to invest that kind of time and money in order to have an old car with hi miles.
i love bonnies but they are expensive to maintain. i got mine almost new so i know what to expect but someone who has let all the problems pile up its not worth bothering with. if you found one that was in better shape to begin with you would be better off. the mileage doesnt bother me, just make sure the a/c works and the best one would have the trans recently rebuilt.
