I got a question about a 01 gt

I am looking at an 01 gt for sale and it is about an hour away the guy is asking 5k for it. It has 140 k on it. The only to things that have me hesitating is it has a little bit of hail damage on the roof of the car. And he said the transmission shifts firmer than normal. He said the reason is because the computer was programed to do that because the owner before him wanted a manual so he wanted it to shift harder. I don't know if he is feeding me BS and the tranny is about to go out. There are no other mods just the comp.

Idk, sounds like he may be trying to dump it off on you before tranny goes. Ask him if he'll let you take it to a mechanics shop to have it looked over. If he really wants to sell it he will have no issue with you doing that. I would always get a used car checked out by a 3rd party anyways

I would try to take it to a mechanic out by where he lives then, maybe? And definitely an extensive test drive. Or maybe just look for another deal closer to where you live

Also be careful with roof damage the metal for your roof is pretty thin and stretches easily and it can be pretty expensive to have it repaired.

Re: I got a question about a 01 gt

Man I just bought a gt for $4500 and it has all kinds of problems but I like that though because I wanted a reso project so it was perfect for me... So my advice is look and look hard don't go for the first one u find and yes have any kind of third party look at it, dad,friend, neighbor, or even a mechanic... Whatever the case may be just go with what ur looking for I'm sure u know what ur lookin for so there go bud... Also! I would detour from the auto, because you'll like 5speed better, plus the wife can't drive it, and it give you some lone time to just get out and bang the gears lol...
