Smile Good Deal or Not for 97 SC300 5spd

Just wanted to give a heads up to the community what I found on Autotrader in Florida, and if it is worth the trip to buy

Beggars cant be choosers. If you've found what your looking for sir, I suggest you take the opportunity. It also never hurts to ask the buyer to work with you a little bit, since you'd be flying in to see it.

^ yup, I agree. I flew down to Phoenix to pick up my '99. Would fly even further to pick up a '97 5spd.

This car has a Rebuilt title. 90% of the cars that Greenfield sells are Salvage/Rebuilt titles. I wouldn't buy a car that already has a rebuilt title, if it were crashed and I had the opportunity to repair it myself or to oversee the repairs to assure that it was repaired correctly, then that's one thing but to buy someone else repairs is another.

Good luck!

they hand out rebuilt titles for simple fender benders sometime also, the title could be rebuilt cuz it was a stolen recovery also...doesnt mean it was crashed i would jus ask them whats up with the title...it wouldnt hurt to ask. GL with whateva you choose.
