Ok, so I'm SERIOUSLY trying to get back into the game here. Found another car I'm really digging, this one a year newer. Only has 122,000 miles on it.
The guy says the gas gauge floats up and down, and he thinks it's the connection on the gas tank. Not an easy fix, I imagine. Some of the lights are on from an electrical short, so that wouldn't be too easy to tackle either, but I'm not sure if the guy is even mechanically inclined at all, or not.
Lastly, I've been texting him. Not sure if he is negotiable on the price or not, but I did ask in regards to the strut towers. He said no rust on them that he noticed (but likely didn't look) and he replaced the struts/shocks around 3 years ago.
What do you guys think of this one?
Even that last silver one I looked at was clean as crap. I don't wanna miss another opportunity, but also don't want a lemon, or a money pit. Considering my Saturn I have now runs awesome, but I could likely sell it to replace the cost of this car.
