I am the buyer of this car! It will be my sons first car. I flew down to LA and drove it back to Seattle in two days. Car runs well and was as described in listing. I have replaced the ABS module and the last thing we need to fix is the emergency brake. The prior owner paid a shop to replace all the e-brake components including the cables but the e-brake still barely worked when I picked it up. Got home and took the wheels off (FYI, they were torqued over 150lbs!), literally had to jump on my 2' torque wrench to get them to turn. Discovered that the little clamps that hold the cable to the frame are not there and the cables are loose and rubbing against the tires. New cables are worn thru to metal sheathing now. I covered them in electrical tape and used stainless zip ties to hold them to the frame until I can get the clamps. Readjusted at rotor and handle and brakes worked well, thought the problem was resolved. Well fast forward a couple weeks and they have been inconsistent and now not working well again, the cables are still secured w/ zip ties, so that isn't the issue.foggydogg wrote: ↑03 Nov 2022, 21:58$5k, probably a good buy.
I didn't bother reading any more comments.
