    Default TOMORROW: I am about To buy an 08 SRT4... is there anything I should watch out for?

    There's a 08 Caliber, 3hrs away, for $4600CAD($3400USD) 180k KMS (105k Miles)

    I am about to go on a road trip to go check it out, and was wondering if there is anything I should watch out for/keep in mind before I buy this car?

    Anything cronic about these cars with this much ware?

    Ya be prepared to spend another $1500 to bring the suspension back up to spec.

    Especially if the original owner never put any $ Into it.

    Check the engine for leaks, turbo condition etc. My 09 is starting to rust at the rear rockers. So check for rust. Check to see the condition of the front and rear k frames. (there is a 10 year extended warranty but, 10 years from the original in service date.)

    Otherwise you're looking at $1000-1500 in repair for each.

    Save your money and buy a Toyota. The Calibers have become obsolete and parts will be getting harder and harder to come by.
