Default Looking at a 01 SSEi...help me

So i found a 01 SSEi for my GF (she wants one BAD) Black with Tan interior, it has everything but the heated seats, I should mention that this car has 235'* on the Swoopies and a trailer hitch ...............now this isnt a big deal since my GF would be pulling her jet ski anyway.....


I know the common problems with the cars and i have told my GF what they are, but i need BC to remind me amd make sure that i havent forgot anything

thanks guys

Steering clunk in intermediate shaft, rear window regulators, various indicating bulbs in radio and sterring controls, too many speeding tickets

Water leaks in the doors (water deflector butyl seals), and some possible trunk leaks.

Sounds like mine is an exception... my 2000 SSEi has been flawless... I have a trailer hitch and pull boats for short distances

I'm with H101 - I changed the left wheel bearing - but other than that - just oil changes and tires in three years.
