Well its quite a good deal already but of course its different seeing it in the computer than in real life. Have to check the engine well, the ride and for some leaks and rust. Hope this help!

It sounds like a good deal however if u can find a 99-00 that's not beaten to death it would be better they were better build, this particular model tends to have a lot of transmission issues.

The price is low because it has a salvage title. That means it was rebuilt after an accident when the estimated costs of repairing the damage were more than its value at the time. If that's a picture of the vehicle then they rebuilt it with a hodgepodge of parts since it has the 2001 front grill. The VIN as posted is wrong (e.g. impossible).

Tiny watermarked pictures don't lend themselves to closer examination. I would not buy a car I could not put my hands on or test drive, and I wouldn't buy it without the approval of someone who knows what they're doing and has purchased vehicles before. As well, both you and that person should be familiar with the tricks that car salesmen use.

I would be extremely sketchy about buying a rebuilt vehicle regardless of the circumstances. It may not be a ripoff but I would avoid.

If you have no pressing need for a car then you can afford to wait a bit longer for the right car to come along.

It should be 4-door, 4-cyls, not sporty. I would prefer Honda or Toyota... First time drivers usually have much more expensive car insurance, and it depends from car. You should compare insurance rates while choosing the car - for example here -
