Default Which Bonnie should Ditchboy consider buying?

Before the boy goes out and gets a non-bonnie car... lets use this thread to discuss the pros/cons and possibilities I have to offer him.

Would prefer to buy from a member...preferably within a six hour drive And NO...IMO it does not need to be supercharged. Just needs to be dependable and cheap enough to fix up for a college student.

Here'* a local listing of Bonnies in my area from stealerships...

Relatively low miles, good options

http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.js...g=1&cardist=28

or higher miles, but SSEi for only $5 morethan the other two, no pics though.

Trade up?? Because it'* an SSEi? Trade up??
Mom loves the 2000+ body style of the SLE and SSEi'* and will have no other.
Besides...Mom owes too much on her'*...

Without looking at the ads, I'd be looking for a CHEAP 01+ SLE with traction control

Lol...yea, I know.
I'm sorry, I didn't realize you were talking about the link I listed...thought you were refering to the 99 SSEi with 120k for $5,000. Lol... My goal is to get an 03 SSEi...but it will be a few more years

Thank you for the links everyone...I've started a notebook and am waiting for ditchboy to come over and go over his options. Keep them coming!
