if you take care of them you can rack the miles up on them pretty good. They make lots of aftermarket stuff for them. They´re pretty slow actually though.

Well, I was more interested in common problems and what not, just stuff I can tell my Mom to look out for next week while I´m visiting for Christmas.

If it´s an automatic be good to the tranny. Motor mounts have always been a problem. And be ready for the front calipers to go bad. Don´t worry though the mounts and the calipers are cheap. The SC should run like a scalded dog with a 5spd. My folks had a 93 SL1 that had 260,000 miles on it when they got rid of it. It had the sohc motor and not much power but great fuel economy 35-40mpg.

I´ve been told that the body parts after about 5 years start to weaken because of where it is the dent resistent stuff. I was looking at a 2002 but the local dealer wanted to rap me for my trade in! other than that there a great car.

Well, all I kow about the car is what my mom told me, it´s a 99, 5-speed with the third door (standard?), a sunroof with a wind deflector, and a rear spoiler. That´s all I know, and all I will know until I get up there and take a look at it myself.
