With great sadness I am selling my 2001 VX. Unfortunately I needed a family friendly car and have no choice. I've owned this car for 5 awesome years and loved every minute of it. I was in the process of restoring it, starting with all the mechanical stuff first. It now runs beautifully and has a new engine along with many other new parts. I'm hoping to sell it to someone that appreciates the VX for what it is and will give it a great home! I am asking for $8K because I have put $10,000 into it, above what I paid, to put in in safe and working order (the stereo system was $2k alone). Here is the questionnaire that I filled out so there is full transparency. You can contact me at designex69@gmail.com for more info or pics. I will try to post pics here also (if I can figure it out).

~Any service history records? Yes

~How long have you owned it? almost 5 years

~Electric windows work properly or bind? Work properly, never had a problem

~Condition of window rubber track/gaskets...(many have ripped or been cut) have usual wear

~Look behind door panels to see if vapor barrier is present - (may indicate previous work on windows) Don't know, doesn't look like panel has ever been opened

~Window regulator /motor been replaced? Never needed to

~Any oil consumption noted, under ANY conditions? (some seem to consume a little when on prolonged highway driving) I change oil every 3-4000 miles, never needed to add additional oil. Engine is new regardless

~What type of fluids (synthetic oil or regular, motor oil, diff, tranny, transf case)? Regular oil..engine is new

~Evaluate/describe condition of all cladding - scrapes, holes, deformation, dryness, chalky appearance, any evidence of being "painted" in any way? Cladding has usual fading but I use Back to Black after every wash. There is a 2 inch defect on passenger side, rear bumper underneath corner. Bought it that way,never bothered me

~Are all cladding screws present? Any striped? All present

~Condition of 4 screw knobs on rear door panel (often break off) All good except for one that doesnt tighten

~Condition of inside door opening levers & mechanism (sometimes broken) All work

~Any unusual /excessive vibrations - very subjective of course- none

~Any problems with motor mounts? none

~Determine the history of the car's physical location, if possible (i.e. East Coast, potential rust, desert, etc) Started off in Texas then was shipped to Long Island @ 10 years ago

~Inspect thoroughly for rust!! Any evidence of rusted bolts anywhere? No

~Status of rear license plate light/socket/bracket -(often severely rusts) -will give indication if it was in a rust belt area. No problems

~Evaluate engine bay- clean? dirty? Any evidence of leaking fluids of any type?? Evaluate fluid levels. Fluid level normal, Engine bay is what a vehicle with 199k miles would look like. I had a brand new engine installed 7k miles ago. There is a little oil sweat by gasket but probably needs tightening

~Evaluate air filter- excessively dirty? OEM or after-market? OEM, seems fine

~Has muffler ever been replaced? What's the status of the current muffler? Rusted, surface rust, etc? OEM, after-market? (Since, as I understand it, these mufflers are no longer available, so an aftermarket one with some modification to the pipes may be required.) Muffler has recently been replaced along with exhaust pipe. I still have original which is fine too.
