This looks to be a decent running and driving vehicle with some issues of note. The paint is glossy and color is even throughout but there have been previous re[pairs and there is some rust on the body. The doors, the hood and the gate open smoothly and panel alignment is good. The wheels are in decent shape as well the tires but there is corrosion on all four wheels.

The interior is in very good condition and shows average wear for the miles. There was light wear on the front seats. The headliner, carpet, door trim panels, dash pad, center console and arm rest were all in very good condition. All electronics, screens, knobs, switches and powered components were working properly. There was no damage located in the interior.

The engine bay was clean and above average for the age and miles. There were no signs of disrepair. The engine ran quiet and smooth with no smoke or abnormal noises. Everything was in order and the oil was clean as well as the coolant. All the belts, hoses, harnesses and hardware were in good condition with minimal surface corrosion and appears to be well maintained.

The underside of the car is average condition for the year and miles and is clean. All skid plates and under car splash shields were properly installed and in good condition. The suspension, brakes and frame structure were all in very good condition. There were no signs of abuse or previous repairs.

The test drive was successful and the car ran fine. There were no odd noises, or any odors from the engine or operation of the car. The ride was smooth and trouble free and there was plenty of power. The car was quiet, no excessive engine noise or harshness. The engine is seeping some oil from the underside. There were no drips at time of inspection. This area should be cleaned off and rechecked to verify source of leak or leaks. The wheel was straight and true and the brakes performed very well and remained smooth through a full stop. There was no shaking or vibrating at speed and the ride felt nice. Everything was working properly in the car including the power mirrors, windows and locks, and all interior electronics and lighting. See below and pics for more information.
