Talking This a good deal?

i seen a 2000 fully loaded ssei with 112k miles on it for 2200. it needs one new tire, valvecover gasket,spark plugs and motourmounts. there is a small dent on the front quarter panel and a little bbubling paint near the gas door. is this a good deal? i defonatley wouldnt mind upgrading a new year and having 50k miles less on it =]

The price is good. If it was me, I would take it because there'* nothing there I can't fix easy. But if your not good with a wrench, it could add up fast.

Look it up on Kelly'* Blue Book. I don't have all the particulars on the vehicle, so you can plug all that info in and get a good estimate for a private party sale, or dealer sale.

yah price is a little low, did you check Kelly Blue Book? the only thing I worry about for a price that low is something that the owner won't tell you is wrong

Take a good look over everything possible and take it for a drive to see how it performs
