Seriously thinking about this. (Don't tell hate wife ) http://www.angeloscars.com/car.cfm?id=913
2003 Bonneville SE
Black with gray leather -ONE OWNER!..Loaded, like new, and runs perfect. This car has a power sunroof, CD player, alloy wheels, rear spoiler, traction control, and leather seats. A 4 year unlimited miles warranty is available for only $695.
Not sure on mileage. I emailed him this morning to find out how many miles it has. The other thing would be I am in PA and this car is in Ohio, not sure how that works.
Any one got a carfax? Here'* the VIN 1G2HX52K834176211 Would love to see it. Thanks.

Just did a Kelly Blue Book Value. They say excellent condition value is $12,570. Hmmm...would LOVE to see that Carfax.

Seems like a decent price! Based on the wear of the driver'* seat and floor mat, I bet the miles are high(er).

Looks like a very nice price, and a good price for a warranty, if it'* a decent one! Good luck!

Warranty is what is really inticing. I am pretty leary, you know "if it looks too good to be true...." Waiting to hear back on the mileage. Also, hoping to hear on a Carfax. WOndering if has been wrecked or maybe flood damge? We'll see. Have to figure out how far away it is and find a ride to go look at it. Mine won't even start right now, so we'll see.

Thanks sonoma....for pointing out the typo ...(Don't tell hate wife).....
Or, was it a typo? Damn Firefox spellcheck

UPDATE - waiting on Carfax - thanks DPnewfie !!
I did a mapquest, for me it is about 1 hour 40 minute drive. Anyone near there that would want to take a look at ti for me. Be a long drive for nothing if it is no good.

make sure you find out EXACTLY what that super cheap warranty does and DOES not cover

Figured it was high based on those wear patterns.

On the other hand, many times high road/highway mileage is not necessarily the worst thing if the car has been properly maintained. It could certainly be worth a negotiation...
