Default Need Advice: New car within the coming days? 2001 SSEi

Hey guys,
I'm new to the board so take it easy on me. I found today a 2001 Bonne SSEi with 77k for under $9k. What do you think of the price? What should I look for and what questions should I ask? I'm going in tomorrow morning to look again, so any advice with the next couple of hours would be appreciated.

Hopefully I will have some pics of my new ride in my profile like many of you.

Hi and Welcome! I've moved this to General Chat for you and edited your title for better visibility.

As far as the value of the car, your best bet is to look up the value on www.kbb.com or www.edmunds.com since it varies by location of the country. From what I've seen around here, that'* a good price.

Lol.... he does too... so questions to ask... ask them give you a carfax on it to see if its ever been wrecked. Look for signs of water damage (in case it is a Katrina car). Check out the windows to make sure they are all working. Check the oil by removing the cap and look for signs of coolant contamination. Coolant level, of course. TIres...check for even wear.

Just saw this thread now. $9k is cheaper than they are going here. So, as long as it'* in good shape, I think you got a good deal.

Welcome to the club.

Added as in an aftermarket cd changer, right? Do you know what brand, perchance? The stock changer in these cars are 12 disk, if so equipped.
