Time for the kids college car to go. It's an '01 ZX3, Red with black interior. 162,000 miles. Power windows and locks, AC works. All stock.

The Good:
Almost no rust- tiny spot on hatchback
Motor is excellent (Zetec) 30mpg every tank, runs good
Tires 75% Hankook performance tires
New brakes
New battery
New timing belt, water pump, serpentine belt
New SVT shocks (rear)
New SVT struts (front) not yet installed
Regular maintenance performed
6 spoke alloy wheels

The bad:
Car was in a minor accident before we got it, Front bumper cover looks like crap, front hood has some damage and RF fender does as well. Drives fine, alignment is good, we have driven it almost 20,000 miles no issues. Rear wiper does not work, I have the relay for it but have not put it in (kind of a pita to do).

It was perfect for what we had it for- back and forth to school. Very reliable, also have a set of steelies with snows available. When I got it I did all the regular maintenance- filters, new exhaust, Mobil 1 oil change, etc. I wanted a reliable car for my daughter and it was.

Will add some pics later when I can. Located 70 miles north of NY city.
