It has 5th Gear Pop out. The shifter isnt stiff anymore(short shifter and bushings??). It needs an Alignment and it clicks when you turn it. Otherwise the body is clean as hell. It has T-tops. Maybe needs a new Alty. and it would be good. Motor runs great. Its jet Black and Lowerd already. I think the guy who lowerd it didnt get it aligned or somthing. Oh and 154kmiles

Would you buy it for $1450??

Not bad, If i had the money...maybe.

CV joints aren't too bad, replace those when your doing the tranny.

No one else has an opinion?? Should I try to go lower? Im going to have either my local speed shop look at it or my moms mechanic look at it tommorow.

Always get it lowered. $1000 is a good price if the body is in pristine condition. $500 for a transmission, $120 for an alternator, $100 for some axles and you have yourself a nice egg for under $2k. If the $1450 a firm price, I would pass.

Give me more. Im not sure if it needs a new alty or not. But the guy was asking $1700 for it. I got him down to $1450

Im going to get it looked at tommorow. But the body is in great shape(not exellent). No big dents or anything like that.

Is there anyone who thinks that $1450 is a good price or does everyone think I should pass.

NX's dont just pop up for sale everyday.

I would go to the $tealership, and get a quote made fro everything that needs to be replaced, have them print one out. It will be outrageous. Then offer him like $800 or $1000, whatever you feel comfy with. Just not more than $1k. Show him your quote and say, well i have to fix all of this stuff and this is how much only parts are going to cost. You could also get a 2nd quote from somewhere like advance auto/discout/autozone for the same parts too. Good Luck.

It has 5th Gear Pop out. Tranny swap $500 when you can find one, or $275 parts only for 5th gear, good luck putting it in (only attempt with a FSM), or pay someone who knows what they are doing.

The shifter isnt stiff anymore(short shifter and bushings??). Bushing $12? short shifter $30 ebay?

It needs an Alignment and it clicks when you turn it. $60 alignment, CV $70???

If you do the work yourself, and feel very confident about the state of the engine (154K) then it is worth whatever you are willing to pay. Ask about when the clutch was last changed, mine was just changed for the first time on that white one you saw at about 154K, just because I swapped the tranny (5th popout). I would look at the suspension carefully, make sure he lowered it correctly, and nothing was bent causing it to never align correctly.

The bottom line is this.. NXs are rare all on their own, throw in the color, suspension, and body shape you want, they are even rarer. No matter what NX you find, be prepared to put some work into it, they are at least 12 yrs old you know.

I'd be prepared for a JDM engine swap, clutch, CV, alignment, tranny, and whatever other misc. stuff appears. Not saying you must do all of that, but I'd be prepared to do it. Go over it with a fine-tooth comb, check all major systems before making your decision. If it looks "maybe", then just go ahead and add those things to your "I've got to fix it" list. Base your offer accordingly.

Damn I wish I wasnt such a dumbass back in the Day. I bought my 92 NX2K (119k) with No rust a perfect body and only two owners for about $3,000 everything ran well and I had all the records for everything done. New clutch bla bla bla. All maintenance was done on time. No pop out and it was all stock with the main owner being a woman!

I have unfinished biz with a clean NX. I will find you baby. I WILL find you!

Rob- you have a point as does everyone who posted in this thread. All that will need to be taken care of....so I will offer him $1100 (yeah yeah) and tell him about all the ish that will need to be replaced. If he doesnt take that then Ill just wait for my next NX opportunity to come.

If only I had $950 more dollars I would have this other NX close by. Im workin on it [email protected][email protected]! (sorry i just needed to vent my frustrations with my current situation.) I guess ill just use this NX as more motivation to get my **** together, if I dont get it.

Good luck...NX's are great, you need to get it for 1100- though, there are bound to be other things to go wrong shortly after you get the car, it's the great luck of the world that it always happens like that.

OooooK!! That car was a certified POS! It had everything wrong with it! The tranny was just gone, the body was all dented up and the paint was ****ed, the shifter sucked, ect ect. I wouldnt even have given the guy $500 for it.

Whats funny though is that as I was pulling in to meet the guy selling the POS NX. It just happend that before he pulled up a Dark Grey NX2K pulled up. With the interior in great condition. I left the guy a note on the car letting him know my name&number and that if he was interested in selling to please call me. Well as my luck would have it The guy walked back out to his car and I talked to him for a minute. I asked him if he ever wanted to sell the car and guess what he said?? In about two monthes he would!

So i guess Ill just keep saving and keep looking and maybe on the off chance this guy will give me a call about selling (I highly dougt it though). But I will find my NX! Oh yes it will be mine again! Thanks for all your replies guys. I think I will avoid the fixer upper type cars and find one thats perfect like my last NX was!
