    Welcome and that looks like a great car at a great price (with the price drop). At that low mileage, you shouldn't find too many issues. That car has been discussed on the forum already so you can look at the thread below for some hints on what to look for.

    It wouldn't hurt to run a car fax to see the history (no accidents, etc.) on it and verify the mileage. I noticed the ad previously has stated "Pending Sale" within a few days of it posting. I would ask what happened to the other buyer or why they backed out.

    That is the second car I mentioned in that thread, at 3000 it's a better deal than the silver one.

    what you should be concerned about:
    condition of tires and brakes
    quantity and seriousness of oil leaks
    condition of spark plugs and wires
    if the trans shifts properly or is hard/soft in shifting
    what kind of maintenance records they have and for what work

    if the trans is shaky (regardless of miles, its 20 years old) that is an expensive thing to fix - around $2-3k

    if the engine has oil leaks, that can be around $1k to fix, depending on what they are

    if you pm me the vin and a real email address, I can run a CarFax for you.
