I'm planning to purchase a '99 5MT base with 165k for $5500. Southern car no rust. Drives smooth. Work already recently done include: alternator, radiator, timingbelt, water pump, cat replaced, new struts, new brakes. Its in great shape stock vehicle. Only issues is an electrical issue with passenger window motor and automatic door locks.

Thoughts?

Door harness wires breaking is a very common issue on these cars - could be the electrical issue.


I'd say that's not a horrible price. Certainly less than I paid over 10 years ago.

Cool. Thanks for advice. Any thoughts on how to fix it? Just replace the wiring harness?

If it's just a simple break, butt splice/heat shrink or solder/heat shrink a new wire in place. The harness as a whole would require sourcing and removal/installation which can be more of a hassle.
