Default Wife is interested in a 2001 SE....

We are recycling cars in my family. Already have a '92 and '99 Bonne'*. We'll keep those. (Guess who gets the '92.) The wife drove a 2001 Bonne today: 48,000 miles, moonroof, traction control, heated seats, CD disc changer. Tires look new. She liked it. Quieter and smoother than the others. Came off lease. Dealer in the middle of Iowa wants $13,995.

What are the pro'* and con'* of this car?
What are the issues/trouble spots to watch for?
Any comments appreciated!

I love mine... so far im at 83k (25k since i owned it) Ive had nearly zero problems, the only thing is two lights burned out in the climate control until.. Other than that she has been flawless.

pros: newer body style, looks cool, proven reliablity
cons: not supercharged, price is much higher due to new body style, not rwd

issues: battery, leaky trunk, steering system, intake failing

yeah, 13K seems a bit steep for a plain jane version though.
