check to see what production date the car is. There is an issue with the rod bearings in the motor which can cause engine failure. not sure what exactly those dates are but I know it starts in '01 and runs through Feb '02. Not too sure about any extended warranty that covers the engine. Might also want to ask if the engine has already been replaced. sometimes if the engine blows it will bring the price of the car substantially down.

i can help you with the dates

the bad run of engines are from 10-01 to 2-02 but they did not fix
the trouble with the engines untill 11-10-02 but as you get away from the 2-02 date chances are that you will get a good engine.

congtr. on your baby to be to.
