PRETTY high miles.
pass aircare? look at the readings on that,
maybe do a compression check too.

Off the lot or private make sure you do all the checks. and verify all the paper work (aircare etc) off the VIN. and go home and check the Aircare history at www.aircare.ca (u'll need the VIN). They may have mickey'd it to pass it to be able to sell. :)

For that price, that isn't a very good deal.

depending on rust and top condition maybe around 1100-1500max.

Like 90 tracker said. Look in the back where the rear seats mount, they commonly rust there.

Step up to the plate and sell her yours for that price.

Try to find one on the private deal. Dealerships are just there to rob you blind. You could find a decent Kick for around 2500 to 3500. I know a guy selling a 93 thats Mint... MINT!! for $4000 obo. not even a ding on it. The same thing in a dealership would be 5 to 6 thou. 94s to 96s are really up around the 6 to 7 mark at some places. Depends where you go. If you know anyone that does the auction thing.. that might be a good bet for a budget build. Just make sure you do a compression test on whatever your buying. I was running on 3 cylinders for a while. Just my 2 cents.

hey Jay,
Im my sig can you reconise your door??

I got a 1992 for 2500 with 310,00kms. But she has a brand new clutch, full exhaust with life time warranty, new rubber, and no rust holes in her, just needs a new front passenger pannel. So far, she handles like a dream.

Although I am going to chop, add, and mod her like crazy over the next few months. :D
