Seller Comments

Here's the deal; I'm down to be transparent and strike a deal if the terms are right, and if you are too, but this car is more valuable to me in my posession than having to come upon another one, so I dont expect to come down much. This car will run for a long time if the normal ware maintenance is put into it. I'll be able to do that in a couple of months, but I'm looking for an automatic for the wife and child. Personally, I'd keep this one if it were completely up to me. 

Please read the full description, I didn't put this all together for my health or practice.

Serious considerations, please.

fuel: gas
title status: missing
Horsepower - 145 hp @ 5,600 rpm
Engine - 2.2L 4 cyl

First, the cons, or the reasons you'll try talking the price down: 
-Windshield is cracked, but doesn't obstruct the view. (Will eventually need replaced)
-Driver dhoor panel needs replaced. (Cosmetic)
-Needs a battery. (Ware)
-Slow leak in both front tires. (Consumabe)
-Needs title. (Inevitable)
-Needs tags [trip permit] (Inevitable/Covid)
-Would benefit from an alignment, but minor. (Loss)
-Burns a little oil over time, but no leaks. (Maintenance) 

The Pros, or why I'm asking what I'm asking and/or more than you want to pay:
-25 mpg city /34 mpg hwy (if you know what you're doing, I've got 30 in town and 42 hwy)
-Motor is sound, starts every time. (Battery providing)
-Was my daily driver/commute vehicle.
-Mostly hwy miles on odometer. Prev. Owner used as daily commuter, predominantly hwy miles.
-No outstanding safety recalls
-Replaced canister purge valve (Chasing symptoms)
-Replaced coil pack (Chasing symptoms) 
-Replaced mounted[coil pack] sensor (malfunction)
-Replaced Altinator (ware)
-Replaced brakes recently (Consumable)
-Replaced spark plugs (ware)
-Qualifies as 'Good' condition.
