If you're gonna spend that much money on an SSEi, i'd at least get one with the full package, chrome rims, sunroof and all. Unless you can truly be happy without those features, and/or can afford to add those features yourself. There'* a 2000 SSEi by me for $6500, 70k miles, chrome rims, tinted windows, sunroof, the whole package. Wish i could afford 2 car payments. :(

There is no such thing as a "firm" price on a used car.

the price was out the door with Taxes, dealer fees and 1 year warranty thrown in. It is a certified GM used car for what its worth.

Considering how rare it is to find one with low miles, I'd probably take it for $8500 all-inclusive. But that'* just me.

I just called, the car is still for sale. It'* a black 2000 SSEi, with 70,000 miles, tan interior, leather, moon roof, chrome wheels, and tinted windows. He said it has a 90-day bumper to bumper warranty. This car is owned by an individual, not a dealership and it'* parked at a respectable salvage yard on a semi-busy highway. He said his wife drove it for 2 years and that the engine and tranny are good, no problems. He wants $6500.

The type of wheels look like these:



If you're still interested, let me know and i'll get his contact information for ya.
