Default Some questions before buying a car

Here are some issues I found when test driving

Steering makes a clunk noise at random times - Lube intermediate shaft??

Oil leak coming off drain plug - couldn't diagnose if plug was lose or if it was from above, so is there any place that leaks oil often on these cars?

What size are the 5 spoke silver rims that came on a 01?

Gas door release lever in trunk - I pulled on it and it just kept coming out so I'm assuming it came detached?? and someone explain that system to me...

Only has cassette player, will a CD player from the same year plug right in?

I will add stuff as i remember more.

Where did you find the car? I am right around flint.
Should be 17 inch rims, and I havn't lubed my int. shaft yet so mine still clunks.
Also you should be able to do a CD player swap very easily.
