Anyone Near San Diego That Could Take A Quick Look At This 1997?

I found this on CL & it looks to be really clean. It has a claimed 44K miles on it however I'm always very skeptical of claimed mileage on MN12's due to known issues with the odometers & odometer fraud. I'm on the other side of the country in New York but I'm very interested in this. I LOVE that color on the MN12's. There are only a few pictures & red flag always goes up with me when I don't see a picture of the drivers seat because with leather seats the amount of wear shown can be helpful.

I think it was a pretty rare color in 1997. I know I haven't seen many of them in that color.

Yeah I would never want anyone to travel that far, that's half a day round trip. I'm going to try to call the seller in a little while & see what other information I can get on it.

I'm in Las Vegas, it's a 5 hour drive to San Diego, but if the Craigslist guy is willing to road trip it here to Vegas for me the check out, I would check it out for you lol!

Mileage is probably accurate, west coast MN12s are usually lower mileage, mine had 44k on it as well, well it was owned by an old lady since it was new anyways.

uhhhh......it's a 4hr drive from where I live in SoCal to Vegas, which BTW, I'm "on the way" to SD. You need to add 2hrs to your 5hr drive.

Nope, I've done it multiple times. 80-85 mph all the way, 5 hours.
