I went and looked at it and all I can say is WOW. Dark tinted back windows, chrome 5 spokes, newer Pirelli PZero tires, SUPER SHARP!!!!!

the bad

intermediate steering shaft is bad
heated seat for drivers side is bad
paint starting to bubble on hood
bad front trans ( motor? ) mount



runs great needs a GOOD buffing and polish to really stand out, but great shape otherwise, not a spot of rust that I could find.

Normal

All can be fixed, since they are all common problems.

yup, I spent about an hour looking at the 5 page topic on common 2000 + problems before I even went to look at it

so, does that seem like a good price?

$12K for an 03 with only those normal problems... i say its worth that (they go for 17+ around here) IMO if you can get it, then do so

I'd go for it, that'* a damn good price. And not a sign of rust? Even better.

Use all of those issues to get the price down.

No matter how you slice it, it still has 122,000 miles. $12K for a family sedan, with all those miles and issues is a lot, IMO.

I cannot agree any more with Vital, I refuse to pay that kind of money for a 100k+ car. There'* a SSEi with 65k miles that is the same year, interior, rims for the same price.

And it'* loaded.
