With the black one selling for that cheap, I'd really check the car out close for damage. I would be surprised if it hadn't had major accident repairs for it to be listed that cheap. That car with the low miles should be closer to the $14K range, at least in Dallas Ft Worth area it would be in that range, unless it's been in a wreck.

12k is super cheap. I picked mine up a year ago with 44,000 miles on it for $16,800 and I was very happy with that. Just Kelly blue booked my car with 55,000 miles on it and in fair condition its private sale value is $17,626 and in excellent condition it's $20,426! Sounds like you know your way around cars though so you should be able to spot a lemon.

Check the driveshaft!

Mine is at 137k, and the center bearing on the driveshaft is toast.. But you can't just replace the bearing assembly as far as I can tell. Aftermarket DS for these cars are fawking expensive.

I have close to 60,000 on mine with a SC added at about 45,000.
The only problem was the latch broke on the passenger driver side seat.

Thats it!

Changed the plugs, have the old type and had one break during SC install. It was easy to fix.

Some guys have their 197 above 150,000 with minimum problems.

Not like my Honda where the gaskets leaked, throttle body always sticking, then the AC going out. That's my history with a Japanese car.

Speaking of Japanese cars, I've had 2 Honda's and this is my 4th Mustang. The 2 Honda's repairs combined were over $2000 out of my pocket, not counting the cost of replacing that stupid timing belt they put in those things. That would add another $600 times 2. Out of the 4 Mustangs I've owned, repairs out of pocket...$0.

Nuff said.
