2004 ION-3 Quad Coupe
Question Looking to buy. HELP!

http://www.dealerrater.com/classifie...Y12P24Z230969/

First off I owned an 04 ion 3. 5 speed and loved it. Well like most gm cars around this time the starter/ignition went bad. I scrapped it after about $1250 went into trying to save it. Mind you it had 250,000 miles. Well long story short three years later I'm looking into a 04 ion redline. Need thoughts on price and what to look for. I've had a few turbos including a mazdaspeed3 pushing 325hp. Never have I had a supercharger though. Thanks for the help.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

6k is about right for that mileage, honestly id offer 4500-5k though.
Is it unmolested? Check for mods. Check the undercarriage. Check for recalls.
The usual in buying a car.

Try Google, first. Then ask.

I think 6k is a great price for that milage, expeically if it is in good shape.
Test drive it, and check for previously stated stuff.
id try to nudge the price down a little just to see if they would budge

idt anything can beat an 07 ion 3 sedan for 6k with 18k miles on it with nothing wrong here in LA lol

See the gold one for sale in the BR area with around 48k on it?

Back on topic, I would have no issue paying 6k if everything checked out.
But of course, see if you can budge the price. More money to put into mods then.

I think nickpratt2010 is asking about prices for buying an '04 ION Redline, not how much he could get for his ION 3 (which he has already scrapped).

Yes, he was asking about prices for the 04 Redline. It said in the OP his Ion 3 was scrapped.
