    looking at buying 2004 srx

    I'm looking at buying a 2004 sex northstar v8 . Went to look at it today a few warnings came up one for service tire sensor. Abs/traction control lights on. He says because of shocks being blown. Both rear shocks are done but I do not hear the compressor kick in on startup. He only wants 4800 for it. It has 161000km I think that's around 100000 miles.
    Could the abs light be from the suspension stability control or is it a wheel hub most likely.
    Thanks for any input

    Check the codes to make sure there's nothing catastrophic wrong with it. If not, that's a solid buy.

    Not knowing the exact options kbb private part in excellent condition ranges from $8k base to $12k fully loaded so something major has to be wrong or is about to go wrong. If its a v8 go for it v6 don't do it. That price seems WAY too low. Not too many ppl will list a luxury vehicle less than half its value unless they know it has issues

    It has issues and warning lights on .. that he's told us about. $4800 like you, repnatl, said is about half book price. Whether or not he should buy it depends on if he wants an SRX that has issues at a reasonable price or one that he needs to do nothing with at book or above book price. If he wants one and doesn't care if he has to put a bit of money and elbow grease into it, and he buys it realizing it, it would be a realistic purchase.
