Thanks,
Nick

All comes down to the miles. And the last trans rebuild, but I bet it hasn't had one yet.

4 stacks, that'* a good deal for an 96 SSE I'd say it has 130-177k miles on it for that price.
I'd say get on it! a transmission wouldn't hold me back it can be rebuilt when tha times comes.

Get a pre purchase inspection done by a mechanic you trust. It saved me from hell with a 92 SSE i almost bought...
