Thumbs up Found a '96 SE with 70,000

What do you think I should look for mechanically, and offer? They are asking $2,000...they said it'* a one owner.

*Moved to General, this isn't mechanical specific*

No different than your 98. Ask them what services they have done to it. If they say nothing about LIM gaskets, I'd run quickly.

the rust is what gets them, i would get under it. it would be great if you could take it to someone with a lift. these cars last 2-300k miles easy, perfect example a year or two ago my inlaws had a 96 se that went to the scrap pile. it had maybe 250-275k miles and ran perfect but the frame was starting to bend and tear. so they found a newer lesabre(almost the same car as a se bonnie) that had very little rust under it, i crawled around under it. the owner said it was a southern pa car. they just use sand.
