I test drove it on Saturday & it runs great, especially for having 109k on it. It has the 3.4L which I've heard should get it atleast 30 MPG. Some of the small issues are the A/C only works on the high & it pulls to the right just a bit. Also, I noticed it doesnt have overdrive, is that odd? Also the car has some rust showing through around the bottom of the car in a few areas & a couple spots on one of the doors. My b/f, who is a mechanic told me the rust isnt a huge issue, but it is reason enough for them to come down on the price. Right now they want $5995, but they are good friends & have done business with my Dad, so awhile back they did mention I would get his "discount". We did tell them about the A/C, but I thought I'd wait till I got financing to mention that it was pulling to right a bit & also mention the rust (like they dont already know!) and see if I could offer maybe $4500 & my Ford Taurus as trade in, which would only be worth maybe $300. Would this be a fair?
Also, at Carfax, it says there are 10 records, but I dont really want to pay $24.95 yet until I have been approved for financing. But I am still curious about the records - does anyone know where I can get a vehicle history report for less than what it is at Carfax.com? The dealer doesnt offer them...

leave it on the lot to many miles and it sounds like there are to many things wrong with it.

AAA members can have carfax done at little or no cost at your local AAA office. 6000 is too much for that car even without rust and alignment issues. I would not buy it for more than 4500 out in that area that sounds like its part of the rust belt.

Where are you located? That helps.

I wouldn't buy it for anything over 4 myself. I would rather pay twice the price and have a car with less miles and no rust or issues than I would a car in that condition.
