nl concorde

I can get my hands on a 97 fairlane concorde with leather interior, woodgrain steering wheel and all the other fairlane gizmos, 6cyl for $10650. The catch is it's done 205000km. The engine runs smooth and pulls hard, doesn't smoke, no lifter tapping. The only thing I can complain about is the trans. It has a rather harsh kickdown, but other than that its VERY smooth. If I was to get it I would buy a waranty for it.
Do you think it's a good buy? Should I go for it or keep looking?

Re: nl concorde

Fairly reasonable I suppose. You could ask the question to the transport department, or "RACQ/RACV/what ever state you are in", to give you a recommended $$ value for that model. Still look around though, you never know. I've missed on the ultimate sale too many times with older cars I've owned.

2003 BA Phantom XR6 N/A with Pacemaker headers - 2.5" exhaust - Splitfire Air Filter - Computer - Max. 232.6HP@RW (173.5KW@RW) - Definatley has potential - Go the BA XR6!!!

Re: nl concorde

i have a 98 Concorde with all the good interior stuff (but not premium sound) 140 ooo kays and a broker offer me 13.5k without sighting the car... Mines and i guess the one you are looking at has a the XR running gear?

Thats is a good price, i'd look into the tranny issue further but sounds more than fair for the money, seeming as privately they are selling for anywhere between 15-18k

Re: nl concorde

I can get the warranty for it just in case something does go wrong but don't realy like the k's on it. I think i might look around for a farmont ghia with a 5L and leather.

Re: nl concorde

what's the name of the warranty, ive heard of one before that is pretty much not worth the paper it's written on as trying to claim on it is near impossible.

2002 Focus CL Hatch
too slow..............for now

Re: nl concorde

don't know the name. It's made up of 4 letters.
If it was a private sale I wouldn't hesitate, but since it's a dealer, I'll pass. Just don't trust them. Theres plenty of ef/el fairmont ghias, fully optioned, with a 5L going around in the papers so I'll wait till I see a good one.
