The Kelly Blue book value for 1997 Toyota Corolla with 165000 miles with all of the vehicle options, in excellent conditions is $2600. Tempest Motors listed this car for sale at $3300, therefore Tempest Motors must have assumed the vehicle to be in excellent condition. I personally do not have a mechanic on hand and do most of my own car repairs, the struts and rotors I did replace, the other work had to be done by a mechanic. I being the buyer do assume 1/2 of the cost to repair this vehicle, Tempest Motors as the seller assume no responsiblity and other potential buyers from Tempest Motors, should be made aware of their business ethics.
