Sounds like you need a new clutch. Miles weren't mentioned but if it's never been done it's likely due after 12 years. It shouldn't slip at all with your foot off the pedal. Good luck

Buy the car. First of all, it's cool. Secondly, for $18k you could put the windows on ebay and make a profit. For 98% of your driving you won't notice the change in accelleration.
