Offer $5k. Worst they can say is no, or negotiate something inbetween.

the '07 is a pretty reliable car too, should be a good pick. Just plan to swap fluids and filters after you take ownership

Make sure its actually a SES model. Ive been scoping out used foci and there are so many times where they say SES and it's clearly a S or SE. Look for painted hatch trim, 16" wheels, a tach, power windows, foglights, a rear swaybar and cruise to be sure

i know it doesn't have power windows. so apparently they are trying to pull a fast one.

well, not sure why but used cars like this its best to pay cash... my svt was advertised at $7995 and i got it for $5500 cash a year and 4 months ago... if you loan ull end up paying more and some/most banks/cu's require you to get a certain type of insurance, you cant just get a basic one for $39 a month like i have and thats even more money at the end. are you trying to fix ur credit or something? theres better faster ways of doing it...

well, dont have that cash sitting around, and i lost my ski mask, so i cant rob a bank. not as much as trying to fix my credit as i am building a relationship with the CU. i have a real small amount of old bad stuff on my credit, but my biggest problem is i dont have much of anything new. and any vehicle financed is giong to require full coverage which is always more expensive than the 39 buck liability. i'm not really worried about that. i'd have it paid off within a year.
