No, not at all. This sounds more like a "D" car that happens to have below-average miles. Yes, that's possible.Originally posted by Bernie:
Does this car sound like an "A" car on the value chart in the FAQ?
It has quite a few serious issues - the leather wear on the seat, the tear on the pad next to the door opening, the minor body damage, the curb rash on the wheel, etc. An "A" car should be perfect, with no issues at all.
You did not mention maintenance. I can only guess that it has not had the timing belt and water pump changed, even though they were due six years ago. I can only guess that it has not had the window regulators updated. The fact that the battery is dead is another sign of improper maintenance. An "A" car would have had all maintenance done approximately on time.
Definitely have it looked over and inspected by someone with a lot of NSX experience who knows what he's doing. You are also relying to a large extent on "the seller said this" and "the previous owner said this", and this sounds like a case in which the car's owner is not particularly knowledgeable or fastidious about taking car of his car.Originally posted by Bernie:
If after the test drive, I am still interested, should I have car inspected or can I rely on my own judgement.
Right now this car sounds like a major risk and the price is no bargain.
