Uh oh.... Evo may be gone

I just got an offer to get a Lexus RX300 + $8000 for my car. He didn't include how many miles or what year it is, but I am guessing about a 2002 or so. The only downside is that I owe $14,000 on the car, so I'll have to find a way to get a loan to pay off the remainder of the car loan so he can get the title.

The downside is that I have a feeling the transfer case is starting to go, and if he's local, then I feel bad about selling a defective, non-warrentied, evo

Re: Uh oh.... Evo may be gone

I thought the point of selling the car was to pay off debt

would still have had a car debt. I still owe $14k on the Evo, so I will still end up owing money somehow. Either credit card debt or car payment.

Re: Uh oh.... Evo may be gone

my mom has an RX 300. i think you should be an adult with kids to qualify for owning one.lol.... really nothing special about them. i'm sure if you wanted to sell your car you could find better offers. but i dont' know what your situation is or what your plans are. good luck with the debt thing.

so far i've been offered 20k and 21k, that's it. This is the best offer. Oh well. Stupid growing up.

I'm not a fan of the RX300s, but it won't be my car.

Re: Uh oh.... Evo may be gone

so I think I have decided to just part the car out and trade the car in. I would rather have one payment a month (car payment) instead of a credit card with interest plus a small auto loan.

I have a friend with an evo, and he wants my camshafts and so I am going to his house on Friday, and then strip it and trade it in on Saturday. That way I don't sell a possibly defective evo to someone personally

Re: Uh oh.... Evo may be gone

It doesn't make sense that he would get rid of his RX300 so easily. They go for 35-42K brand new depending on the options. His still holds a value of atleast 23k and he wants to give you 8k on top of that? doesn't sound right to me for some reason.
but it doesn't matter since i just read your last post. nm.
good luck

Re: Uh oh.... Evo may be gone

hrm, anyone find it strange, that both guys(me and monkey) both had some pretty built up cars, and both are getting/got rid of them when the car was at its prime?

how come youre ridding yourself of it again? i realized FWD sucks the hard way(almost torquesteered right into a tree doing 3rd gear tuning pulls in the country roads), and decided to get a reliable nice big DD with ok power from the get go, and later on another awd 4g63 platform, but im curious as to why youre getting rid of the evo.

exactly. the t-case almost going out kind of matured me. I figure I can be debt free, start DJing more and grow up some with a decent car. Will save me tons of money in the long run too.

Re: Uh oh.... Evo may be gone

I'd still wait for a better offer. You got an awsome car, don't settle for something less.
