Default Need some advice on a potential '99 SLE purchase

Hi all:

I've had my '95 SE for just over five years, (purchased with 91,000) now with 174,400 and still going. Looked at a '99 SLE on Saturday, it has 94,000, good paint and more features than my '95.

Anything out of the ordinary that I should look for? Was the UIM and LIM a factor in the '99 MY as well?

I can probably buy it for $4500........any suggestions or comments are welcome.

Thanks,

-Jay

Yep, the LIM/UIM is a factor in '99. My sis'* '98 SLE just failed 2 weeks ago at just 50k miles. I would just say to inspect the car the best you can and keep the intake in mind. $4500 doesn't sound too bad if its in really good shape. I would say $4000 for a decent shape car with those miles though. Good luck, you will like the car I am sure.
