I bought a well sorted and documented one for $8000 in 2013 with 3.0 motor (about 40K miles on the motor), reupholstered seats in tan leather, good black paint, zero rust, working A/C, recent clutch and rebuilt transaxle, updated suspension, but it had a faulty fusebox and leaking fuel filler hose. Since then, I have done a few more things to make it reliable. I replaced the fusebox, had the injectors cleaned, replaced all the fuel lines, filler neck hose, and emission hoses and valves, replaced the 02 sensor, replaced the brake pads, replaced the brake proportioning valve, replaced the battery, cleaned the sunroof drain channels, and cleaned the power window motors and lubricated the mechanisms. I did most of the work myself so there is no labor cost, just parts.
