Default Used 2000 SSEi

Hello all,

I currently own a Black 1991 SSE.
Yesterday I was driving home and noticed a used Black 2000 SSEi in a used car lot.
I stopped in to check the price tag $19,995 113,000kms on the engine.
It'* fully loaded, has a few stains on the mats, and one or two minor scuffs in the paint, but other then that is appears to be in mint condition during the first look. I took it out for a test drive and it was better then I remembered. (I drove one years ago for a day)

I was wondering, before I purchase it, what I should look for in the way of problems.
Also, I'm thinking sub $20,000 is a really good price, do you argee?
(That'* $20,000 Cdn, btw)

Thanks

I'd say that'* a good price; we paid $22,500 (USD) for ours last summer with 22,000 miles on it and it was worth every penny. It'* a great car...I'd say go for it if you can afford it.

That'* a good price for the mileage.

Hey you US guys, that works out to about $13,000 American $$.

Make me cry, why don't you. That almost looks like my SilverBullet, except without the sunroof, and I value mine a lot more than that.
