1996 SVX LSI Mechanic's Special $500

Year: 1996

Model: SVX LSi

VIN: JF1 CX8656 TH1 00495

Manufacture date:1996

Paint Color: Emerald green pearl

Interior Color: Tan

Miles: 149,108

Location: San Ramon, CA 94583

Options: LSi


Modifications: None

Major service: Transfer case replaced, all wheel bearings replaced.

Engine Condition: Worked well when last started.

Maintenance Records: Available via Carfax I can also put you in touch with the mechanic

Transmission condition: Good

Glass condition: Mostly good. One impact divot (about 1 mm diameter)
on front passenger windshield out of driver primary field of view.

Type of tire and remaining tread: Kuhmo ECSTA SPT 225/50 R16; 0.20Ē tread.

Type of wheels: Original 225/60 R16

Interior condition: splits in rear seat leather. Significant solarization of plastic.

Body condition: 2nd paint job is fading. No other body problems.

Known defects or problems: Needs new front left and right axle shaft bearings. This is why I stopped driving it. Itís not safe without new axle shaft bearings. AC compressor has a major freon leak; needs new compressor.

Non-diagnosed electrical problem: Nothing turns on when ignition switch is turned to ACC. Likewise, it wonít start when the ignition switch is turned to start. Itís not a starter motor or engine issue. Itís an electrical issueóno power is present. A critter probably chewed up a cable after I stopped driving it.

The screw for the shift release is frozen. I tried spraying it with various anti-freeze compounds, but I ultimately stripped the Phillips head screw.

Comments about the car: Since the shift release is stuck and it wonít start, it canít go out of park. You need to tow it on a flat bed truck or with vehicle dollies on all four wheels. In order to get it onto a flat bed truck, vehicle dollies are required.

Asking price: $500 OBO. You tow from San Ramon, CA.
