I am looking into buying my very first car and am pretty nervous about the whole thing. I don't have a parent or another experienced buyer to help me make the decision, so I thought I would look online for some advice. I happened to walk by a 1990 Mercury Station Wagon for sale and called the seller for additional information. It's going for $1500 and has the following issues:
- needs new valve gasket covers
-the passenger car window does not go down
-the odometer broke after the mileage hit 70,000
These are all issues I obviously would like fixed. The seller actually owns his own shop, so my question is; should all of these things be fixed before $1500 is a reasonable price? Or should I talk him down from the original price and then have the issues fixed elsewhere myself? Or is 1500 a reasonable price even with all of these issues?
Any help would be much appreciated!
