Since it was a rental, which we all know...don't get broken in properly, don't EVER get driven nicely, and generally get the **** beat out of them. I would say get rid of it, you could probably only just start to imagine the hell that car has been through. I would say get that car that is near you that you know someone owned and respected as their own, not something that was driven by god knows how many people and has been beaten. Neither one will have seen salt right? I say go with the one near you.

The car was not a rental, for some reason it shows up on carfax AS A RENTAL but was actually a corporate lease. Not sure why. again I could have been lied to but hey.....

I'm not in the mood to pay a shop to put a trans in, if it was easier to me to get access to a lift and do a swap I'd do it.

The 2000 will be gone by next weekend if everything goes as planned. I'll end up taking a loss but I'll be working a lot of overtime to make up for it.

The new owner is getting a h*** of a deal even with the problems it has.

$200 to paint a fender on the current one but $600 to fix hood herpes on the new one.. Your potato counting skills are rough there buddy.

Oh..and a trans, $2,000 will get you a rebuid.. you will want an Intense rebuild though. That'll cost a little more than the $2k.

I'm assuming the regulator is beyond fixing yourself with the Techinfo article?
