I'm going to take a look at a '95 integra tonight. I would like some advice before I go. Smog and registration are one month old. brand new tires. scratch on front bumper. clean title. 2dr. Seller's description is below:

The only problem that it has is that it idols a little rough when it is cold. After a minute, when it warms up a little, it runs perfect. I am pretty sure that it is a sensor that is malfuntioning. I know which one it is but have not had the time to have it replaced.

122000 miles
Automatic
aftermarket CD player
Sunroof
New timing belt
New radiator
New sparkplugs and wires

Priced at $4200 but negotiable.

TIA :)

check the seal around the sun roof. 9 years old so all the rubber is going, don't want a leaky roof.

Price is acceptable. Try and get him to below $4000, though. It really shouldn't be more than that.

Work looks okay, miliage is fine. If you can, try and get under the car to look around for rust and check on the exhaust system in paticular. I know corrosion isn't a big thing in your part of the country, but you never know. When looking over the rest of the body and engine compartment, beware any newly repainted sections. See if there are any oil leaks on the engine from seals that have gone. That and the sunroof and you should be okay.

yeah it was around 3800 for "good" condition. would a scratch on the bumper (minor) and that idling problem bring it down to "fair?"
