Its ok. I needed a SSEi for under $5000, this is what I ended up with.

So far it needs:


Window Regulators....Lots of em lol (or fix the exising ones like Archon did)
Fuel sending unit
Oil sender
Various other stuff
Heated seats dont work

other than that it runs F*** awesome for the 153,000 miles it has.


900 miles later it showed up. I bought it completly sight unseen with the known problems and I'm 100% happy with it. As money comes along it will be repaired and into the 13s eventually.

It has some various cosmetic blemishes that need addressed. my 93 is in MUCH better condition but hey this is a 2000 with a bluebook that is MUCH higher.

sorry about the shaky pics I might have been a bit excited, more pix to come when it gets daylight again. I took it to a $2 car wash here are the results. Oh yeah I did this all in 1 hour lol. (lunch break)


































GOD I'M STOKED!!!

I should mention the car was a rental for the first 30,000 miles, after that the OWNER of the rental company bought it and his wife drove it for the remaining.


It has never had anything replaced on it...nothing ever other than the obvious like brakes and oil changes...I'd say the SSEi'* are pretty reliable when they are driven on the highway and maintained ok. The guy saved EVERY record, every oil change and I cant find anything but oil changes and tires. Of course he has let it go to crap since the milage but thats pretty normal after a car hits 150k or so.

the 93 will stick around until this car is roadworthy.

Was this an ebay purchase or just an ad online? It doesn't seem too bad at ALL considering the oil was changed regularly. That'* what my biggest worry would be. Rental cars aren't always a bad thing either. For less than $5,000...sweet deal.
