so, im in the market for a jeep (my first!!!). very exciting. i test drove one today and really likes it. its a '98 4x4, auto, black, hard top, missing back seat, which i don't need, 83k miles, 4 cylinder, and custom rims.
the only thing is that the check engine light is on, the seller claims that the light just went on tonight and that it is a $40 wire that needs to be replaced. he says he knows a mechanich that can look at it. and the wheels are oversized, so the steering wheel is not at the right angles, it doesnt rub the metal when you turn, i made a pretty sharp turn and nothing rubbed.
cosmetic-wise, its in really good shape, it seems to run well, but obviously from this posting i don't know too much about cars..... hes selling it to me for $5,500. is that a good deal???
