How much do you trust your mechanic? Have you been going to him long? If you have faith in him and he says the X is in good shape, buy it, but maybe have him give you some type of warranty. Have the control arm bushings been done? How does the neck of the cooling system look? How many miles on the used tranny? Oh, why was it sitting for a year? These are just items to be aware of. Good Luck.
