i lived in florida for awhile and used cars are much cheaper there than they are in the northeast. if you think that is the best deal you can get then go for it. i just wouldnt recommend a RWD after dealing with one in the past.

Oh man... sounds like discrimination to me Seriously, I didn't know they made a RWD only Jeep until we were looking for one in the AZ area. Until then, I automatically thought Jeep = 4WD.

the bad things are it has 97k on it and there is a dint in the front quarter panel and there paint nics all over the car but none are substancley large. the air conditioning only runs on high witch no biggy i live in florida its like 150 degrees outside. and there is a cd stuck in the radio but my first thing buying for it is gonna be a pioneer head unit anyways


the car is extremely clean and well takein care of in the inside is it a good deal? should i buy it?
Ive always been told by my mechanic grandfather, it doesn't matter how many miles a car has,but how well it has been maintained.
I would have a good mechanic check it out,and be sure to check the fluids, if the oil is a dark black color,then it most likely hasn't been changed regularly. Take it for a test drive and note any issues with the steering/brakes and be sure to check all the electronics out, power windows locks etc..

Regarding the blower issue: it sounds like the blower motor resistor has gone out causing the fan to run on high only, I believe the resistor is like $40.

If you really like it, use the flaws to negotiate a better price and if the seller wont negotiate or offer to fix anything that you find wrong,just walk away because you can always find another one. Good luck
