    How much? Do yourself a favor go to auto zone and get coolant test kit for hydro-carbons in coolant. Easy way to make sure your not spending too much for what might be a projector take the car out on the hi-way for about a half hour;run it hard 40-80 mph WOT a couple times, if there aren't any problems you'll be doing the owner a favor if you buy it or not, as it will blow a lot of the carbon out of the tailpipe.

    Read the warranty VERY carefully. The HG problem is well known and there are usually loop hole that don't cover them or the price is high enough that you pay for it in advance.

    Wish my Seville was likewise lol. I had hopes my TV cable was just wacked and causing a jump in tranny shift but its for sure slipping out. Off to storage with it and on to a newer caddy...

    I'm curious, have you looked into ex warranty on a 15 year old car?

    Who will sell you this? My thoughts are the cost of said warranty and how well it will cover things, just what Ranger said.
