    I'm looking at a 94 that the dealer has informed me has inaccurate odometer mileage. Looking at the carfax, it's hard to guess the actual mileage. The pictures in the description show a decent interior, but the brake pedal is worn down to metal.

    Autotrader ad:

    The dealer also sent me a lot more exterior pics and the outside looks pretty clean. I think I can get it for around $4000- is it worth the risk??

    thanks for the advice!

    I don't know where you are but I bought a so called "rust free" car from Chicago a few years ago. For Chicago I guess it wasn't bad but from what I am used to it was rusted.
    If you can find a southern or western car they sure are alot easier to work on.

    Jonah111, I have a '94 at home with 215k miles on it that the interior is not as worn or beat up (I'm away from home right now) . The one shot of the engine shouts of neglect by PO and dealership. If dealer is unsure of mileage or can't verify it steer clear of it. $4K is way high. It looks bone stock and would need ??$ to make reliable DD or trail rig. It depends on your expectations, but you could do a lot better, for that amount from a private party. IMHO
