It looks like a decent car but 4500 seems low for a new motor.

It looks like the drivers seat has been redone.

That alone probably cost 2K.

I can't give you advice from this distance but if it starts drives and shifts correctly and the ac works its probably well worth the 2K. '

All that other crap is crap. I'd only pay the sales tax. I'd say "you offered the car at 2K. I want to buy it at that. We have a deal. Quit screwing around." Then wait til they do it.

The dodge dealer tried to pull this crap on me when I bought a new car from them, tacking on stuff and trying to say the mfgr raised the price and such. I just said, no we have a deal, give me my car for the price on the written offer. I was really pissed.

Meth Price

Well I wish them luck-The MB was a great price at $2k, a good price at $2.5-2.8K and over that it is stupid price!
