That's a cheap price, I would inspect it really good, and take those lame wheels off

Basically, it's gonna have some issues. Just give in a good test drive. Feel for looseness in the suspension, accelerate and decelerate at different rates. Get a good look under the hood. There's a good possibility, at that price, it's been in an accident. Body panels that don't quite line up will be evidence of this.

Haha, ****... In my neighborhood, the thugs would be all over those. I bought a Buick years ago and it had 13 inch spoke wheels with cheap tires. I sold them for $1000.00 I paid $1500.00 for the car. Lol

If it was salvaged I would walk away. Also, why an auto!

Like BaSohol said, if its worth it to you. Because if you have an accident, your insurance isn't going to pay much for it if its a total loss.

2 collisions and automatic... I'd stay away from it. Tell them to put new rims on it, pay for your mechanic to give it a complete once over (special emphasis on the front end), and they drop the price to 10k OUT THE DOOR, then it might be a decent deal.

It would have been a great comeback. But the two post combo plus the word "dont" kinda screwed it up. Next time Jake. I'm not hating on auto guys, I'll just never own another one. Even my Powerstroke has a manual. I figure I make my vehicles work hard enough, least I can do is shift the gears
