2005 Aero w/115k miles

I'm interested in either a 2005 Aero in manual with 115k miles, radiator replaced, timing belt done at 100k, new tires, new serpentine belts, on Tein lowering springs, but otherwise stock. No dents or scratches on the body that i could tell, and the only accident was a dent to the rear bumper in which the bumper was replaced. Drove it and it feels good, pulls hard and handles well. Currently on it's second owner and been a California car it's whole life so I'm not too worried about rust.

Asking $7k. Is this too high? I was thinking of trying to talk it down to $6k if possible...

Re: 2005 Aero w/115k miles

In your post you say you're interested in EITHER a 2005 aero w/ 115k miles and then go on to offer no alternative. Did that either slip in there by accident?

That doesn't seem like a bad price honestly. I mean, negotiate to see if you can get $6k but if you like the car and it's in good condition with maintenance items addressed than I would still recommend buying at $7. What tein springs? I had h-techs for awhile and liked them but the s-techs are fairly universally hated online as riding harsh. Either way if you rode in it and liked it, sounds like a good condition Aero. 115k miles at this point is on the lower side of average miles for these cars.

Re: 2005 Aero w/115k miles

Whoa, sorry about that, I totally forgot to put in my alternative. My alternative is a 2005 Legacy GT in automatic with 184k miles on the chassis but has a rebuilt motor with new heads, new valves, new spark plugs, new T-belt, new lower control arms, and new wheel bearings. He's offering $6k for this car... So not sure what I want to do. I'm leaning more towards the Saab cuz of the manual, but I know that the Legacy will be super reliable because of all the work that has been done. The guy who rebuilt the LGT is a master tech at a Subaru dealer here in California as well.

Re: 2005 Aero w/115k miles

I vote Saabaru - there's a bit of a gamble inherit with buying a rebuilt motor car. Plus manual on the Saabaru will be moar fun  driving saab

You're getting moar bang for your buck with the lower mile saabaru than the high mile LGT
