Talking Re: Auction XJ'S

Bought mine last year at a GSA auction '97 with 28,000 miles. Came with a couple of bruises that I can live with. I haven't done any maintenance other than the normal fluids changes. Paid ~2/3 of what other 97's in the area were going for and they had a lot more miles. If you go this way do not expect any fancy features. The year before I bought a 2000 Stratus at a GSA auction. It only had 13,000 miles also no maintenance other than fluids, tires, spark plugs and this week a battery. I'm a believer in buying GSA cars.

Auction on July 28 Mountain State Auction at the Saltwell Exit of I 79 just north of Clarksburgh. Only 3 jeeps and none with really low mileage. However a bunch of other cars. Review the list and set a price in your mind that you will not go over with auction fever!

If the link did not work do a search for GSA auctions.

Re: Auction XJ'S

My son just bought a 98xj SE from the GSA in an on line auction through the Bel Air, MD auction. I was a little leary, but it turned out to be a great deal. The car is a red four door, has skid plates and trac-lock(important as this will be an expidition car), aw4(would have prefered a stick), AC, cruise, am-fm stereo(no tape or cd)46000mi. He paid $6200 for it. I went out to MD to pick it up for him and drive it home. It ran great, the AC frose me out, the cruise control worked great, got 22.8mpg for the 1000 mi drive home. The only complaints were one tire was borderline and the spare was flat. There is not a dent or ding on the car and interior fabric is like new.
