    Not bad for 2011. Of course you can't get perfection for 6 grand, but sounds like a good starting point.

    Yup the seller just replaced the motor mount. My buddy has a ppv and has replacement his motor mount 3 times in 1year....
    Fluids all look brand new.
    I will check struts stuff when I can get it on a hoist at my buddy shop.
    And that’s a nice find for you. My buddy got his 2011 with 67k for $11,000... I think yours for $7500 is a fricken steallllll

    That's certainly good news. If you're going to have a stable full of these get yourself a Tech2, it will save you thousands of dollars and countless hours of precious time.

    Nice! It sounds like you and your friend got good deals with some assurance on the condition of your vehicles.

    Mine was a great deal but also a big risk!!! I bought directly from the county (full immediate cash payment required). Every vehicle they sell is "as-is" with no guarantee the engines run (trailer pickup recommended). Also, they would only allow you 15 minutes (total) to look at ALL of their vehicles at one auction. They were kind and gave me 30 minutes total to inspect plus a 7 hour road trip to get there and back. Needless to say I was running around like a madman during the inspection.

    Dallas, welcome from North Carolina, sounds like you have a great find. We all like to see pictures, I guess it's a guy thing. Also on the forum we have a special section for PPV/SSV for your posts. What part of the country are you from?

    techbiker or Bike Mechanic , just wondering !!

    Howdy and thanks! A large part of my family is from the Granite Falls area- NC is an incredible state. I live in DFW- great for business but not for trees haha.

    I will create a new thread in the PPV section to document our repair progress, however I am attaching a before picture. Our goal is to use the SUV as a light work and occasional weekend travel vehicle. That doesn't mean we won't take great care of it. I'm thinking about reinstalling an aftermarket center console for work purposes (laptop mount, etc.) and a couple other accessories to restore some of its unique flair. Will keep you posted!

    I'd keep the blue. Besides liking blue, it is hard to find a SSV/PPV that is not black or white.
