I've had the car for 5 years and put 9K miles on it, I purchased the car from a Vortex member in Phoenix, and I'm now the 4th owner. Car was originally purchased on 1-10-1994 in Madison Wisconsin (have original window sticker, owners manual, and all his maintenance receipts. He moved to Phoenix in lat 97 or early 98, sold it to the second owner in 2000, car had 100K on it then. Third owner purchased it in Feb 2003 with 123k on it.

Heres what I've done:
*Changed Oil & Filter (needs again soon)
*Fixed sunroof
The bad:
*Factory Alarm inoperable--it worked fine until I took the keyfob with me into a lake.
*Heater core is bypassed--New Heater core included with sale or use your dealer since it available under recall
*Headlight has bullseye chip
*Fogs & Turns are cracked
*various door dings and rock chips--all door dings are metal only, meaning PDR will fix most of them, not cracked paint. Rock chips are mostly on the hood and front bumper.
*one small scratch on driver side fender, but no rust
*Headliner not in the best of shape...and since I was planning on replacing it, I did not re-install the sunroof insert when I replced whe sunroof.
*As noted earlier, the Alpine head unit is not working, will continue to troubleshooot.
*ABS light is on--not sure why
*Retainer clip on radiator fan is broken, have temporarily resolved by using ny-ties (seems to be working fine)
*some minor pitting on the speedlines
*could use a deep clean with claybar and then full polish/wax, but paint is in great shape
*no cracks in leather, but could use a little conditioner
*exterior plastics are slightly faded, could use some Mothers Back to Black

In addition to the car, new owner will receive the following:
*Newly recondition e-codes with great glass and no broken tabs
*New Glass fog lenses, just need installed..hadn't done it yet since I hadn't bought new turn lenses yet.
*Original steering wheel
*new front bearings and grease
*new fuel filter
If I had to rate the car, it would be the following:
*Exterior--7/10 (rock chips, ZERO rust)
*Interior--8.5-9/10 (Leather is great, plastics are great, headliner so/so and the automatic seatbelt covers a little weary
