It sounds like the brother to my car. Might even be from the same litter. ( Can’t tell without pictures) So close and a good price. It would be nice to have a spare.

What ever that car is, they did not use a correct VIN (missing 2 of 17 characters), or its a scam ad.

A word of caution - when looking at GEN1 cars.


If the trip meter reads 000 - odds are the odometer isn't working. It' s quite common on 1991-1994 cars.

There is one listed on Craigslist Grand Rapids, a 1992, that after looking at the car - I pointed it out to the owner. He is still advertising it as 100k miles.

I hate guys like that.

What qualifies as "low miles"?

85k might not qualify - SC2 (02) in Fishill, NY. Was just there, Saturday night. No rust under the 3rd door is a good sign

1999 SC2 with 42k miles, near Philadelphia. Blackberry, such a gorgeous color

1996 SW2
Default Re: Low Mile Finds

"If the trip meter reads 000 - odds are the odometer isn't working. It' s quite common on 1991-1994 cars",

I've been wondering about that as the odometer on my 1996 SW2 works fine but my trip odometer is hit and miss (mostly miss) the past year. I've wondered if that might make a potential buyer think twice (not that I'm planning on selling ..It's been with me since I drove it off the lot in 1996).

I do have records of every fuel fill-up / auto service/ date and mileage to authenticate that the main odometer has worked right along, though (not to mention that the state has mileage records from my yearly emissions tests). Would the wonky trip meter make any of you think twice?

On my dead 1994, I bought it ag 53,511 miles. The trip meter was reset and it broke the odometer. But the previous and original owner kept records of everything and I was able to see that a month prior to my purchase it had an oil change at 53,4xx miles. So paperwork can save your behind on that part, especially if it is from outside mechanic shops and is dated and recorded.

Not with good records. Condition of the car would be make/break - you are in an area with little rust, so your car is already a step ahead of most things I can buy here

I haven't seen a 95 or later with a odometer that didn't work. Of course after late 97 they were digital.

Our 93 SW2 is stuck at 79,000. I figure it' s probably in the 80k range because it is totally rust- free, and everything else works - including all power windows and locks. Even the auto- restraint seat belts work. It' s the first one I have seen where the driver' s side still works, since the 90' s.
