Hey guys. I'm putting my car in the paper and figured I'd put it up for sale here also. Its too much of a gas hog for my tastes (mom only gives 20 bucks a week for gas and my girlfriend lives in Orlando, I have to scrounge for money often, so the gas bill alone doesn't leave me with much play money)
The kelley blue book value on this car for selling to a private party is:$4,585
Power Door Locks
Dual Air Bags
Dual Power Seats
Overall car condition selected was fair. The car is about 58985 miles on it (I entered 59,000 on kbb.com). Fairly new tires, only 2200 miles on them. Car washed once a week since I owned it (last week of July 2001). Car has a clean history, I am willing to forward the carfax report if you are not currently a carfax.com member. VIN number available upon request.
Upgrades done to the car:
Cone steel air filter (926 CFM according to add, better than K&N)
Removed air silencer
Blue Indiglo Racing pedals (they work, really cool looking).
Problems with the car:
Has a shaking problem in Over drive when going between 35-55mph. Especially when you're in the 40-50mph range. I drive it around in 3rd gear around town and it eats the gas, but its a smooth ride. Once I get on the interstates (or over 55) I shift into Overdrive. The CD player no longer plays CDs for some odd reason. Just decided to quit. It's probably a simple wiring problem. Radio does work and so does the power antenna.
The cruise control relay in the fuse box is bad, so I hooked up the pedals to that until I get a new relay. I havn't been able to find one yet, I think it maybe dealer only.
Power mirror on the drivers side doesn't work in one direction, passenger side does however work.
I've dropped about 1500 into the car:
Four new tires
6 new fuel injectors
New timing belt
New bearings on the wheels
Steel cone air filter
Other than that the car works great. A/C works also. I hate to sell it, but it eats gas and I need to get something more economical. I am looking for a Nissan 300ZX non-turbo (asshole parents say the Twin turbos and GTZ's are too fast for me :( )
Any questions, post them here and I'll answer ASAP.
Car is located in Wesley Chapel Florida, near New Tampa (Bruce B. Downs BLVD). Its the last exit on I-75 before the I-275 split going towards Tampa.
I'm asking 4,000 for it. Willing to negotiate. Thanks for looking!
