Whats up guys...

I need a cheap mode of transportation quickly and this car caught my eye. Seemed to be in resonable shape, also seemed slightly modded. (lowered, rims, exhaust was all I could see)

I'm a Honda boy, so sorry if I seem ignorant, but is this a good deal? I assume it has high mileage so are there any quirks associated with this car that I should look for? Any info is appreciated.

When you test the car, go to a road that will allow some 5th gear pulls. Get it in 5th and let off the gas. Do it again and let off the gas and hit the brake (obviously don't stop).

You are looking for a synchro failure called 5th gear pop-out. If you are a do-it-youselfer this is not an expensive fix but you might want to avoid it.

But otherwise the SR20DE is a VERY reliable engine. Do you know exactly what mods it does have? For $5500 you can just about buy a 95 200SX SE-R so keep that in mind
