Sounds good!

For that price you pretty much can't go wrong regardless of its condition.

Nice! I got a friend who is trying to sell his. 600$ sounds like a **** good deal. Especially if it's major issue is rear end problems.

Yeah honestly, i had to snatch it once i saw it ran good and was in decent body shape.


Well see after i get the rear end in and take it to work and look at it in fine detail well see what i find :/

Im thinking just Maint. Based on how the car looked

Probly do a Delco/mobil 1 oil change, Rapid fire plugs, wires, cap/rotor, tranny service. and ill see where im at,
probly gonna have to flush the coolant 2, Forchanutely Nissan Coolant Is RLY Good stuff( Ive seen it come out perfectly clean at 90k, Never changed) that says something about DEX cool .

great find! Wondering where you bought it? I saw one for sale a while ago somewhere in the Metro west area just wondering if it was the one I saw...

again good luck with it. One of my fav looks of the T/A and IMO the best look of the 3rd gen. Poncho

I would like to thank the person that came up with these fine avatar and signature's.
