Huge price drop for MX-3.com members!!!!

$6,000 FIRM!!!!!

Everyone take a peek - we just finished this car - wish I could keep it. It's really pretty and, while not completely perfect - really clean.

You don't like hatchbacks....

Which explains your MX-3? :shrug:

Well the price of that car I would take one... And the mx-3 style is much different...

I like the long old hatchbacks like probes and our mx-3 :)

I hate hatchbacks too. The MX-3 is more of a "liftback" like the older Corolla, Probe, Camaro, and others...

Well let's see - hatchbacks or liftbacks:

1) 1981 Chevette
2) 1986 Mustang GT (Ford called it a hatchback)
3) 2- 1987 Ford Escorts
4) 1997 VW GTi
5) 2003 VW GTi

I guess I must like hatchbacks.

Price drop $6,000 FIRM FIRM FIRM. Ignore the Craigislist prices....discount for MX-3 fans....

This is a great car folks. Clean and ready to go. Hurry up and buy it!! We are working on an EVO right now and need more space!!!

It's really an SP23 less the rain-sensing wipers, heated seats, and Bose stereo.

This car is a 5 door "s" model PLUS it has ABS, Xenon lights, Tire Pressure Monitoring, Leather, Sunroof, 6 CD changer (assuming anyone uses this anymore!!), Side airbags, and two dealer installed options - Pearl satin fuel filler door (surely makes the car go faster), and a (seriously) nice Rear bumper step plate (keeps from scratching the rear bumper when loading / unloading)

I can't belive no one has bought this yet...

This is y I hate Craigslist... No one wants to pay the normal price for somthing only the basement bottom price, and then still have the gull to ask for a $100 less :(

Hate Craigslist...

Good luck Gary :( and text me about the seat belt soon!

Embarrassingly bumping.....this is a really good car folks......sell it to your friends....

    Get them to drive a reliable sports car, or at least sort of a sports car, and have them learn how to drive a stick on a new clutch.....they don't drive a stick, do they?

    Great for college this fall.....have THEM haul all the stuff, get 32+ mpg, and open the sunroof. You didn't really want to help them move into their dorm room anyway. Did you? Really?

Even Kegan has the hatchback shape growing on him. [it's because of the two strollers, I think]...

UPDATE: Now with new brakes - all around. Includes all 4 rotors and brake pads. Good stuff, not junk. Cost me $271 for everything and I won't change the asking price to MX-3.com members.

Drove it 500 miles this weekend with no issues except the brakes were just not right. Lots of rust on the face of the rotors from the car sitting when is was not running (before we bought it). Now - everything has been replaced. Truly needs nothing.
