F/S Low Price Solstices

While searching for low-mileage Solstice's to post, I've begin to notice that low priced Solstices are starting to be advertised. This is generally due to three reasons; high-mileage, salvage rebuilds, or ones that have been poorly maintained. So I'm going to begin posting some of them when I come across them on Craigslist, just be aware that I may not post them that often, and will try to stick to Solstice's priced around five thousand. Also, if you see something that you may be interested in buying then it would be a good idea to use as many research resources available BEFORE buying.

Good idea. Thanks. Some are looking for project cars or parts cars.

Always run more than one VIN checking service, and be always be wary of stated mileage. And remember the saying; Buy At Your Own Risk because All Sales Are Final.

When looking at older, abused Kappas, where does one check first for rust? Is there a consensus on where the rot starts on our cars yet? For example, on other cars that I like, depending on model, I know to check the engine cradle, quarter panels, rear box sections, rocker panels, or strut mounts on the first pass to quickly eliminate the stinkers.

Good question, but I have yet to read any posting regarding Kappa's rust prone areas. The only rust comments I've read are underbody rust or rusty bolts, etc. Where do Kappa's rust, or Kappa prone areas would be a good idea for a new thread, because sooner or later certain areas of the body will begin to rust.

But what I'd be wondering about on these cheaper cars is could they be flood damage cars, or unadvertised salvage vehicles, or even had their mileage rolled back. Because just because most of them do have high mileage, that still doesn't mean an unscrupulous dealer couldn't roll the mileage back even more. What you need to know about dealer odometer fraud

Basically all the more reason to run multiple vehicle reports since it's been shown that is what on one report may not be on another.

It looked like a good deal price wise, but mechanically who knows. Always have to remember the saying; buyer beware when looking at something that sounds too good to be true.
