I did get it for cheaper than usual because of the following:


- Leaks OIl
- Leaks transmission fluid
- Leaks large amounts of power steering fluid
- Key is stuck in the ignition
- Brake light does not work, replaced the bulb...still no go
- HUD windshield is NON-HUD glass
- Oil pressure around 19PSI at hot idle (a tad below the quarter tank mark)
- idles extremely poorly
- Cracked Headlight
- radio LCD is flaky
- power antenna is broken
- headlight switch is touchy
- needs BOTH tensioners and other pulleys replaced, eating up belts
- 172,000
- brakes need replaced soon
- tires are complete crap, near bald.
- battery randomly dies after a couple days of sitting
- air/carwash leaks around front driver window
- driver front window is loose in track

but still...assuming the motor holds up most of this is cheap to fix. $500 goes a LONG way at a junkyard.


I sold the 2000 a while ago, it was costing me too much to fix it and all sorts of random crap kept breaking. This one may be the same way but I will not care, the price was right.

cough ccr cough. yes the rear strut(*) are leaking a bit too. Not bad but I hear the compressor cycle on every so often.

the backlight is ok, the screen will get scrambled..well it did it twice in 1200 miles so far.
