Re: should i buy

no real issues honestly. they are good cheap cars to work on and fix. the v6's dont really have any recalls or issues, the motor is a push rod 3.8L and is very easy to replace/fix/upgrade/work on.

Re: should i buy

younger people generally get screwed over by salesmen. It would be wise to take along someone that knows how to deal.

You sir are correct. When I was shopping for a 99-04 gt this one salesman wanted like 10,000 for this 2000 with 100,000 miles I turned back and laughed then he said hey hey lets see what we can work out i eventually got him down to 8,000.

Basically just make him know that you know your ****.

Re: should i buy

fox bodies are different... some assume they are worth their weight in gold, most that bring the money are perfect condition... while those that think theirs are worth the same are rust buckets.
