Recently traded a few rolls of fence($340)for a 06 LS hatchback.137,000 miles. The man said it ran when he parked it a few years ago and since then the rt front wheel locked up and the started quit working. He was just going to scrap it, so I took a chance . Well after trailering it home I tapped on the starter a dozen times, had my wife crank it and it started right up. As a former mechanic I wanted it up to my standards to be reliable. Tires, Brakes ,rotors, calipers ,wheel cylinders ,radio ,Spark plugs, valve cover gasket. Preventive maintenance water pump timing belt , idlers and serpentine belt. Drove it 500 miles and the exhaust separated at the flange at muffler. New muffler and pipe. Love the way it sips has compared to my truck .The saga continues
So far Iím into it for about $900 in parts and fluids. Still need to replace the rear axle bushings and put a couple of rocker covers on it.
Aftermarket speakers and Bluetooth radio after being unable to get anything from the stock radio.
