Mystic544 "...So I do not have the money at this time" I totally understand
Don't think I am 100% ready to let her go this second anyway (unless the $'s were right lol)
I'm around - you can give her a look when ever ;)

_Auricom_ that idle can be a busted stock mount or a Poly mount as they both give vibro's.

Thanks for the offer but unfortunately I have lost hours at my primary job and was paid off at my seasonal job. So I do not have the money at this time. Had to catch up on other unexpected bills. In the next few months I will be back on the look out for one. I am getting two new jobs and one I will be getting overtime every week so I will then have the money. Would like to take one for a drive before I look at buying one. The one I did look at looked like it had some questionable things with the car. One being is that you can feel it vibrate inside the car at idle with factory engine mounts.

Well I will not be able to do anything for couple weeks. Right now my car is in the shop. I am replacing the transmission that I just swapped into the car. From what the shop told me he said it sounds like the shifter rail that controls the shifter forks probably either is bent and is jammed up in the transmission or it broke in half. I say in half because when you open the hood you can manually move the one part to shift it so that tells me its broke in half. Transmission broke on me as I pulled into work. Which sucks cause I live 30+ miles away from work.

If you're talking about the 5-door CD silver model, it has been sitting at that lot for a really long time, I believe a couple of months now. Haven't checked it out personally so I don't know if something is wrong with it, or if the stealership is asking too much. Who knows. Good luck on your search!
If you are referring about the one at the gonzales buy here pay here you would be correct. I went there after work and they are asking 1,500 down but asking 8,500 for it. It is no where near the true value of these cars. I priced the kelley blue book and in pristine condition the retail is 6,900. However this one is far from it. It needa cosmetic work like a new front bumper drivers side fender passenger door needs to be repainted but I think the whole door was replaced at some point and just had a really bad paint job on it to where the original color of the door is showing through the silver. But really I would only offer 3k tops because it the whole car needs to be cosmetically fixed and repainted.
