IS THIS CAR WORTH THE $$$$$ FOR MY KIDS TO DRIVE...HOW MUCH TO FIX PROBLEMS?????
110,121 miles and will have a few more as I drive it everyday to work. It has a new water pump and a new thermostat. The car has 3.73 gears and a traction lock, an SCT chip custom tuned by Lonnie @ blueovalchips.com. It has leather interior thats in ok shape. It has the usual wear and tear on the drivers side seat. It has a computerized systems dash that tells you fuel mileage, distance, if everything is working ok, etc. The transmission fluid was drained and refilled and the filter and gasket was changed about 200 miles ago. It needs new front upper control arms which I will change before the car is sold. The passenger side seat does not move forward or backward, due to the seat motor not working, but is in the farthest back position. It has the factory JBL premium sound system with a cassette player and 10 disc CD changer in the trunk. It also has new plugs and wires replaced about 500 miles ago. It could use a front main seal and some spark plug tube gaskets, but other than that it runs and drives great. I have several pics that I will have to post later.
