    New Marauder owner from NJ

    Well this post is a double edged sword. I had been looking to buy a marauder which I did yesterday but i think i was a bit too impulsive. Its an 03 with 80000 miles. Needs a rear bumper, left taillight, new rear suspension, exhaust, brakes and then paint and body could use some attention with some dents and fading. Also it appears one of the previous owners installed the aftermarket sunroof option on it. I only paid 5500. Not sure if i should restore or dump it and find a better one. Engine runs strong and the interior is immaculate on the plus side. Anyway..happy to be here and look forward to your input

    Post some pictures up

    Finding a sub 100k mile car isn't so easy these days. If the paint is okay and it's not rusting out, it's probably worth fixing.

    If there is a mechanic you trust bring it to him for an inspection.

    He may find additional items that weigh on your decision.

    Welcome to the MODNESS!! First off what is wrong with the bumper? They are very hard to come by. It might be repairable. 80000 miles is not that bad for this car. The paintless dent removal process works very well I just had about 11 pulled out of my car. Good luck with your decision.

    Hello and welcome.
    Have it checked out by a mechanic you trust. If no major repairs are required keep it. Can always trade up later.
