I've just test drove a 94 se-r the other day and am still contemplating whether I want to buy it or not. It's black w/faded areas, a huge dent in the driver side door, passenger-side door latch pops out of place (interior), water leakage into trunk and (when I asked about it) the owner said that 5th gear has popped out a couple of times on him.

The asking price is $3500, I got him down to $3300. But I'm worried about the 5th gear pop-out issue. Is this really expensive to fix and if so should I be able to take him down to an even $3000?

Please let me know what you guys think. Is this a fair deal? Everything else seems okay. He's put in new brakes, tires, a/c, water pump, battery and front axle. It seemed fine during the test drive but ya never know...(Also, is there anything else I should look out for?)

TIA

I would have to say that the price is high considering the problems that you say it has, especially the fifth gear pop out. this is atleast a 800 to 1000 repair, so if it was me, i would keep searching unless you want a project and got the cash. :D :cool: :rolleyes:

i wouldn't pay over 3000 for it. All those problems will cost $$ and the clutch job when you swap the transmission has to be done. It is cheap to buy a tranny and swap it instead of having 5th gear re-done.

i bought mine for 3200, no 5th gear popout, perfect paint, no tunk leak, drivers door had a slight sag, fixed with a little adjustment. what im saying here is, the car you are looking at is definitely not worth it.

i wouldnt buy the car unless it was selling for $2000. I bargained the price on my NX2K from $4500 to $2000 2 and a half years ago. No gear popout, 115k miles and runs strong.

the pop out is a problem... i'd go with the new tranny as well... the trunk leak happens frequently in b13's... usually it is a crack on the welding over the left rear whell well... i fixed mine with liquid nails... i've had no problems so far... a year later
