Decent.... High insurance, probably beaten, or broken...

Have a mechanic check it out.

yea the only thing i know right now is that the top is messed up. you have to put it down manually.

ya if its got a bodykit , turbo, and whatnot you can bet it was beat on...id shy away from cars that have been beat on personally

how bout the car in general? some ppl say eclipses give you a good bit of problems

the 4g63 is a good engine. Can handle abuse and high power (evo...)

It really is dependant on how it was treated. Body kit and turbo car usually means it was beat to hell. Unless you can HONESTLY get one from an old lady with full maintenance history, I would be hesitant.

any suggestions for a good car under 4000

Body kit and its a 7-bolt, I'd stay away from it unless you're mechanically inclined.

Just get a Honda. They are cheap, get good gas mileage, very reliable, and easy to make fast.

the 420a engine completely ****** balls
ive heard better things about the 4g63 though, but no personal experience so who knows

all i know is my 1997 RS was in the shop bi-weekly if not more often than that.
that being said... different engine sooooo i dunno

06-11-2007, 10:28 PM
