While screwing around on Autotrader, I found a nice red '97 854R with 99210 miles for sale at $9995. It seems to good to be true, it's probably been in an acident, but I was wondering, do you guys think this is worth looking at? I checked the dealers site and they post the same price. I know if I did get this I should get the dealer to give me a nice warrenty, but I was wondering what you guys thought.

Re: 854 T-5R 100k, for sale $10k, worth it? (omega6_virus)

Its coming up to the expensive 100K service, but if not an accident car that is a reasonable price for sure. Check it out! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Being a '97 it is an R, not a T5-R right? Not a lot of difference but it be newer. Market value probably dictates over $12,000 USD. Check the overall condition and have a look under the car if you can. Bring it in to a dealer for inspection also.<br>Good Luck! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> R = <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emlove.gif" BORDER="0">

Good price but on the low side for such car. Have it checked out VERY carefully.<p>Yannis

I will definatly ask about frame damage and accidents. Good thing my family is pretty good friends with a local mechanic. The mechanic did go out with my sister. Thank god he's really nice and didn't hold her against us! lol jk. But my dad works out of town and gets ciggerettes really cheap so he brings him a few cartons everyweek and then we get $20 oil changes for free and had the axle in our Suzuki Swift replaced for only $40 because we sent the old one back. It's a pretty sweet deal. I hope I have a daughter so she can date a mechanic. lol. Hopefully my dad and I will go check it out this weekend.
