Got the report on the 2002 back from the mechanic.
Hood shocks: 125
Front Brakes: 275
L Front axle seal leaking: 150
Steering rack leaking: 865
coolant and trans fluid dirty, needs tune up.
I called the dealer, and he said, "what if I came down 2k?"
Not sure what to do. There are conflicting reports as to the reliability of the 3.7L engine. The mechanic pulled up the wholesale list of 3.7l engines, there were a lot of them, and they were going for top dollar. Does this mean that the engine is prone to failure, and lots of people need one? Or, that its a great engine, and everyone is asking top dollar?
