Default Is this a Deal? 1994 SSEi 130,000k for $2700??

I was recently looking at a 1994 ssei with 130,000k on it because my engine is shot in mine and then mine could be used as a parts car if needed
This car was priced at $3000 but said if paid with cash will take off 10% so it would be
$2700 would this be a goo ddeal im not real familiar with prices
I have not seen this car in person yet but it sounds really nice

Normal retail on this car in good condition is $3350 (NADA) and low retail is at $2,425. So as long as the car is in good shape your getting a pretty good deal for a fair price.

Kelly Blue Book -- 1994 SSEi, 130,000 miles

KBB says $2775 for good condition private party value. Retail value is $4,280 ( dealership )

I wouldn't pay more then $2,000 for it private party. and $3,000 - $3,500 from a dealer.


Look for cracks in the leather, rust behind the back doors, bad / peeling paint, etc...

Look it over REALLY good and use anything bad you find to bring the price down

I recently purchased a 95' SSEi with 128,000 for $2,500.00 from a dealer...it was originally listed for $2,950.00 and I made one offer for $2,500.00 and he took it. The car is loaded..leather HUD and every possible option including keyless/security that works flawless!
I picked the car apart b4 I bought it and found nothing more than minor GM clear failure on the roof, a little wear on driver'* side seat bolster from enty/ exit and no sunroof or strip leaks! Everything is super clean, under the hood looks like a 50,000 mile car...no signs of intake leakage or oil and SC is smooth and quiet. I know I got a hell of a deal (from a dealer) and am very happy. The only problem I have is keeping my foot out of it and not smoking the tires @ 30 MPH!

I'd say that'* around fair value for it. Problem is the car is 14 years old and it is going to have normal wear on it; worn leather, possible rust if it was used in a northern state, rock chips, etc. I guess I'm trying to say is be picky but don't go overboard on little details. If it'* in mint condition and not worn looking 2700 is a good value, but otherwise you should offer less.

I'm really pumped about the increased number of 94 SSEi cars that I've seen around here recently! One problem is that pretty much every single one is in better shape than my car, but you get to that when your car has nearly 300,000 miles. Including the buying price, all the repairs, and just about anything else that went into the car, including the audio and extra wires and such, but excluding regular maintenance like oil changes, I have $2000 in my 94. That'* really cool. If the car is in "used" condition, you should expect to pay upwards of $500 for all the JY parts to get it clean again. This has been my experience, but the miles pretty much make it all a bad comparison.
