price seems kind of low. check out all the hood/trunk/door jams feel for over spray, or better yet take it to a bodyshop and have them inspect the body for bondo repairs

yeah i would be a little worried about being the fourth owner too. you cant completely rely on on carfax either b/c if they dont report it to the insurance company it probably wont get reported to carfax.

have the body checked out, check for frame damage.

Dude, 3 previous owners? Treat that thing like a disease.

It's worth it to find an single-owner beauty for a bit more cash if you ask me. But if you want to heavily mod from day one, then it really doesn't matter I suppose.

most likely the first owner got tired of the car, and the second and third owners it sounds like they couldnt afford it...you live in az, you should definitely check out south coast mitsu they have some great deals on used 2010's with under 20k miles for like 27-28...they also have a few brand new 2008 MR's for under 30k

its not uncommon to have the certificate of title. they could have sent it to him by accident when he bought the car from the previous owner.

damn it what if everything seems to check out fine..never fails!! I always seem to find the evos that have some type of long story behind them..last evo i thought i was going to buy the dealer had emailed me wrong price of car..switched the 6 with the 8 he posted 26899 and it should have been 28699..bs
