Should I buy this car?

Asked by May 12, 2017 at 10:34 PM about the 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

It's a 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse with a full
body after market kit and a carbon fiber
hood. He is asking $1,250 for it. Only thing
wrong is that it has a blown head gasket.
I'm worried it may be something worse
though. Should I take the risk?

Sounds like a car that has had a lot of problems and the owner is finally giving up. Most likely street raced.
