yeah 182,000 miles also. It needs a few things and there is a check engine light, but I'm pretty sure it's due to an exhaust leak. Small price to pay for an XFi

No, the duct tape was included! haha. No big deal, I'm happy to get a new car so I get rid of my Ford Focus which is no longer "The Aerofocus"

Now that's a MUCH better start than one of my lumps, and you saved a pile of dough on shipping too. Looks like a good score to me!

In Ohio anything that starts and stops on it's own power is worth 1000 so you did good. Rustproof before she turns to dust.

Yeah, rust proofing is one of the first things I'm going to be doing before I bring it back up here. It's only going to have to make it through 1 winter and then I'm going off to college so hopefully nothing too bad happens. I typically walk everywhere or get rides so I can avoid driving at all. I'm more in it for the hobby of fixing cars. unfortunately, I'm limited to my 7.85 an hour McDonald's budget.
