Hi all,

I'm looking for a 96-97 LC and I'm wondering how everyone checks
out vehicles that are out of state. I'm in MA, but I'm also looking all
over the US and I've found 3 that I'd like to look at.
Other than a CarFax report and some digital pix, what are some good ways of weeding out the weak mechanically/visually without getting on a plane to check out each one. (once I pick one, that's what I will be doing!!)

Any advice/experience appreciated.

hello, welcome to the forum!

well, you could always have an independent inspector check the rig out, with a specific list of itmes to inspect, based on what you read here.
Or you could hope to find a nice forum member living nearby who would be willing to go look at it.

Thanks for the welcome!

Anyone ever used Carfax's Mechanical Check?

The amount of readily available information (i.e. :rolleyes: ) on this forum sometimes

has a shock and awe feeling to it. :D As well as scary. :eek:

This particular LC is a 97 at a used car dealer in Rochester MN
It's green with 154,000 miles. Your Dad is more than welcome to take some picks of that one for me!!

Dad is in Missouri, and has been for over a month...and I'm unsure when he'll be returning..

post a "help in Roch MN" thread in ChitChat....someone from that area will be available.
