Considering a Low-Mileage car!!!!


Recommended Posts

I am considering a low-mileage car, unfortunately it is a 1995 Neon but it does have 76,000 kms and is almost free of rust except for the underbody. They want $2000 for this car certified and all repaired, it needs new exhaust and new lines. Would this vehicle be worth $2000?

Seriously, don't bother. You can't give me a Neon. For the same price, take your chances on a higher-mileage J-body before you think about buying a Neon.

I would be inclined to say no, $2k Canadian is about $1700 American, and there is no way a '95 Neon (even with so few miles) is worth that much, especially if it has under body rust. You can easily find something better, hell a rust-free '93 Accord will cost $1500 US (if that) and will run forever. My brother-in-law's (the one I drove after my wreck) has cost him less than $1500 for the car, registration, new tires/brakes and a new hood/grille/headlights ('twas in a fender bender before he bought it) and its a very solid car that would look great with a paint job and will run well past the 250k miles on it right now. If the engine does go out, a new one from the junkyard will cost a few hundred bucks.

That's alot for a Neon. Remember I found my car for $2100, and it's a million times better than a Neon. We actually looked at a Neon when we were car shopping, and we test drove it. It's certainly a fun-to-drive little car...but the guy was offering $800 bucks for it. Is the underbody rust surface or deeper? Neons are fun to drive little cars but There are better vehicles out there (no J-bodies though).

It is just surface rust but I decided to ignore this one. I took a look at it and something is up with it. Turns out it may have head gasket issues.

Something common to those Neons. You shoulda gone with the Aries :P 150 bucks and all. I saw one for $700 bucks...that's crazy for one of those!

I still know where the Aries is. They want $500 for it now at another dealer. It needs rear struts, body work and who knows how rusty it is underneath. I don't even know the actual mileage. I actually found a 1967 or 68 Eldorado the other day but I dont know if it is for sale. It was gold and in need of desperate restoration. The paint and body were still good though.
