not worth $600 IMO.

drive it into a wall at about 40 mph.


search function is in the upper right corner. alot of threads on tucking bumpers

remove those lights.

have a nice day.

Good luck finding a timing chain on that motor.. lol And for $600 you can't go wrong, I'm sure you could sell it to someone for twice that if you felt like it. There's an ass for every seat.

Manual or Auto ? The "E" or ETA engines are the least desireable. However they are known to be bullet proof and get great gas mileage. But in hindsight i would have gotten an "I" model. I kinda stumbled across mine but love it anyways. I would suggest fixing it up cosmetically and flip it. Then look for an "I" to mod up.
