Looks to have been well maintained.
Rear-end accident in 2005. (Body in perfect cond. now.)
Recent accident where owner drove over a parking pylon damaging the engine and trans. The Service Station mechanic that repaired it and is selling it, bought it from the insurance co. I trust this mechanic....but just to be sure, am taking it for another opinion.
My son works for a car dealer (Dodge, Ford, Pontiac, & Isuzu).
Plan to take it there to have their mechanics check out under the hood and the undercarriage. Will be worth the $100 for reassurance and peace of mind...know they will be honest with me.
Son tells me it is a good price. His only warning is that maintenance is costly.
I still love this car! It is pretty....White with tan leather interior. There I go being a typical female!
Any other advice is very welcomed. Will let you know my final decision. Thanks again.
You have chosen wisely.
