I'm about purchase an '02 SSEI. What are the common known issues of which I should be aware? Thanks for your help.

Unless changed recently, you can bet the front trans mount is shot. If you lift the hood and have someone put the car from Park to Reverse to Drive a few times, you'll see the whole engine move excessively. Play it up about the motor mounts being shot, and try to negotiate down the price. Then, after you buy the car, do the solid mount for about $20 and an hour or two of your time.
