post the vin in the oasis report thread to get one of the mods to give ya a history


first how many miles are on it. has any major service been done to it and has the regular maintenance been keep up with?
does the turbo and fins look good or dusted?
color of antifreeze and oil,
color and smell of the tranny,
any popping or vibration when driving,
how well does it start cold,
how well does the tranny shifts,
any signs of dried up coolant under the hood or engine area.

stuff like that is what you should look for. sounds like a good deal. keep us posted.
