Any particular problem I should inquire about? They are only asking $2220 so I'm kinda leery about it. Looks pretty clean but things aren't always what they appear in the car selling world. I just looking for a few key questions to bring to my test drive to make sure I'm not getting screwed over: )

IT has a lot of miles. That is why the price is where it is. I personally, would stay away from it because many things wear out at that mileage. You need to ask if it is the original engine and transmission, check to see if there is any repair history. Listen for bearing problems and check steel brake lines for rust, exhaust.

Remember, if you don't work on your own vehicle, you may want to think twice on this one.
