Well.... i didnt take it. It had a lot more rust than the pics showed. It also had flakes of metal in the oil. large ones. Also it was the most underprivledged SSEi ive ever seen! No sunroof, or 12 way pwer seats, just the leather, and air compressor is about it. it was in a kinda scary part of town any ways and it was a po dunk little dealer. he said his phone has been ringing off the hook about that car. well sorry but it didnt have just little bubbles of rust it was through rust on the hood, and 1/4s also the lower part of the dash was falling out.

That'* bad news, and good news. Bad that you had your hopes so high and were disappointed. Good that you found out it was not all it seemed before you bought it.

Don't worry. There'* lots more out there. Keep looking.
