Welcome to the forums.stilinsm said:Hey Everyone,
I've been looking for sometime to get into a 94-99 Eldorado or Seville.
I've got the opportunity to pick up this '98 Eldorado ESC with 105xxx miles for $6700. It's extremely clean and runs great.
What do you think?
The mileage i wouldn't be to concerned about but that price is a little high by my book, I would run your diagnostic codes that is about all i can tell youstilinsm said:Thanks Homer. What do you think of the price? Any concerns over the high miles? Is there anything I should be looking for mechanically?
Yea, the price is great, not sure what homer meant . Carfax is clean. The Cadi dealer only had warranty records on file. The biggest issue in the first 40k miles was the ac compressor. Sure wish I could find the previous owners name and number. Carfax shows that the dealership picked it up a auction.elwesso said:DUDE that price is GOLDEN!!!! PICK IT UP!
Id look into maintenance history and a Carfax also.....
CRIMSON PEARL IS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE!!!!!! And the aftermarket rims look nice too!!
Give ya a hint of where it's at..."The stars at night are big and bright, deep in the heart of ....."elwesso said:Yes.... Ditto what SLS said..... If I knew where it was located, id come and get it before you!
Too bad we have big problems when importing used non-european cars. You must pay for a precise test confirming the car has required properties plus you must get manufacturer's - in this case GM - expression (which is a problem because GM has no subsidiary here). Some people are running these cars under U.S. tags, but it is not so legal...stilinsm said:Give ya a hint of where it's at..."The stars at night are big and bright, deep in the heart of ....."
I've got a $500 refundable hold on it, as I'm still undecided. Totally impractible, child #4 on the way... :shocked2:
Here's a couple more pics
elwesso said:Id see what kind of guarntee they have..... If you can, post the code here before you sign on the dotted line..... It might be a simple thing, or a bad thing, we should be able to tell..
Yup, I think my quest will continue. The've already said that if the code returns, they won't sell it. They will send it back to auction..elwesso said:TCC code means the torque converter isnt working..... This could be really bad..... Chances are your gonna have to pull the tranny sometime, especailly if the TC is bads....
If you decide to go for it...... Have them fix this before you buy it.... Or have them knock 2 grand off the price in case the tranny goes out.....
