I'm not much in touch with such, so I ran it thru Kelly (kbb.com) as

I guess if I really needed such a vehicle right now, I'd *consider* offering
$5k US (maybe 5500) contingent on full inspection OK. But that wouldn't account
for the value of any warranty that might go with the sale.
But, as mentioned, I'm not much in touch with such prices. Who is?

Picked it up this afternoon. New front springs and sway bar links
went in before I picked it up due to the infamous coil spring issue
(one broke and took out a tire on the lot). Paid $6900 for it,
safetied and etested. Was a late production 2002 that was sold well
into 2003 by the same lot I bought it off of. Handles and runs like a
new car. Looks like one too except for some pealing of the clear coat
on the alloy rims and one minor parking lot "door kiss" that looks
like it might buff out. Was rustproofed by the dealer when new.(and
will be oiled this summer)
