I wouldn't, they use salt on the roads... plus $1200 just seems high to me for 168K... and the guys' only got 1 feedback, from an auction for a nissan foglight he sold...and he can't spell bumper....

Get a 96 or higher is that is what you really want. Its an incredibly quick car, be careful

95 was the first year for the car, known to be problematic vs the 96+ model. Mikey has a 95 and I'm sure he will want to add his 2 cents. I am against buying a car that is the first model year.

Anyway, that one is missing 2 centre caps, the oil leak can be expensive, but ya..its a common problem. Oil pan related I believe, generally a quart of oil a month I think...It only takes premium gas, and Autobahn is confirmed by 2 RPO codes, QQX and KV4 (V-rated tires and 3.71 gearing respectively)
