On second thought, that price seems to be quite high.

Consider this. In April, 2002 we bought our 1999 SE with 28,000 miles. It was three years old at the time and we paid only $10,500. Compare that against the four year old car you're looking at with 90,000 more miles for only $1,100 less. I'm optimistic you could find a similar car for the same price with much lower miles. Hopefully it would be closer to your home, too.

Hmmmm.....interesting. Like I said, I did a KBB value and it was 12,500. That wasn't including the mileage.
Have to try it with mileage.
Here'* what I got
Vehicle Condition Ratings
Check Vehicle Title History
Excellent
$10,100
"Excellent" condition means that the vehicle looks new, is in excellent mechanical condition and needs no reconditioning. This vehicle has never had any paint or body work and is free of rust. The vehicle has a clean title history and will pass a smog and safety inspection. The engine compartment is clean, with no fluid leaks and is free of any wear or visible defects. The vehicle also has complete and verifiable service records. Less than 5% of all used vehicles fall into this category.

Good point. A car accident, whether involving another car or not, may not show up on a Carfax if it was never reported to the DMV. Look things over carefully no matter what.

and just because the car was in an accident doesnt mean its a bad car either....

^ True, good point. The same goes for rental cars. I almost sold my Chrysler to a guy, but when he saw (I told him first) that my car was a rental, he said he didn't want it. It t'd me off since it has given me no problems in 25,000 miles.

I don't want to discourage you (tallbump) from any car you're looking at, just be aware of everything. After a good look at the car and a test-drive, you can be very comfortable deciding if a car is a good one.

photo #3 shows the drivers side floor. Check it out in person, but it looks like rust stains to me which could mean water leak?

Very good point here, Carfax isn't always correct. I bought my 95 used from the third owner. Carfax only shows one owner on it still to this day.
