My brother asked me to put this up here, it's not that he doesn't like it he just doesn't like it as much as his other cars and something needs to go. The pictures are deceiving; whomever did the bodywork was an artist so while it looks very nice it really only looks that way. What it does do is run, drive and "look"nice. 
 


It has the good engine, 5 cylinder turbo diesel with an auto trans. It comes with three rust free extra doors and a trunk lid off a parts car we scrapped. The BBS RS are not included in the sale. 





 

Car is located an hour east of Ft Wayne Indiana in beautiful Delphos, oh. Sold on the wheels in the first picture.

This might be stupid but, what do you mean drives and "looks" good?

These are great kids cars, very reliable, very safe, very unfast, very uncool so there won't be a bunch of kids partying in it. 
Had one & used it for commuting for years & made bio-diesel which I think is what ultimately killed it.

Done right, bio can increase the life of the engine.

It's rusty underneath, probably needs floors and sills. The paint is nice and shiny so I'm saying it "looks" good but isn't as good as it looks. Still a great cruiser.

I have a lexus based on the same transmission. Had a lot of problems with the transmission before, until I found a manual on how to repair and inspect this transmission. Basically, the most vulnerable place of this type of transmission is the driveshaft. Small breakdowns are very common, but nothing serious. But using a quality automatic transmission fluid will change the situation. My personal recommendation is to use Type ATF-TIV for Toyota, Lexus, and Volvo, Some Audi and Volkswagen or Type Mercon LV for Ford (DuratecHE), Mazda (Europe/Asia) and Mersedes-Benz.
