Default does this sound right?

1998 SE. Black, tan cloth, body is a little dinged up, but not near as bad as mine, paint is in awesome shape. Interior is mint. It was the owner'* personal car until about a week ago. Looks like a pretty much base model car. It'* at one of those buy here-pay here dealers. He said I could drive it off the lot for $4999. Does this sound like a decent price? Taxes are coming back soon and my car is getting kinda tired.

Miles

EDIT: In my area code, retail is $4915, with 84,000 miles in excellent shape.

unless it has less than 40,000 miles I'd say its a ripoff.

There are several 96-99 SSEis with higher miles in that price range. There is a 97 SE for 2000 locally in UTAH, with 190,000....and another 98se with 105,000 for 3500 so I'd say its overpriced

We are talking private party..I am.

Dealer that is about normal.

That'* really high. Go to http://cars.com and compare based on what you know about the car. Search in your area, then take print outs when you go to talk to him.

That'* a very high price. I figure I could sell my 99 SE for about $1,700 around here.

Mine pretty much matches the description you posted.

I agree it'* more than I would pay for an SE. It must have low miles if they are charging that much. I'd keep looking.

It has 113K on it. I figured I'd ask you guys about what they go for b/c KBB said $3100 for that car in my area, but it also said mine is worth $1500, and I'm never getting that out of it, lol.
