    I doubt you will find an SSV Z for that money.

    OP's price of $24k seemes decent.

    The L77 is unlikely to have any internal problems as long as your service it regularly and use quality products.

    I don't want to sound rude here but you can't expect a perfectly reliable car, it doesn't exist.

    Maybe you could put $10 or $20 away each week in preparation for any potential problems.

    Or buy a Camry or a Lancer

    Edit: Mine was 29k lol but the best one in SA and only one of two for sale. The other was 33k with more K's but was manual

    Need to remember that SSV Z Series is effectively a Redline with a sunroof (in sedan mode anyway), so leather, rear subs, front brembos, FE3, sat nav, reverse camera etc and MY 12.5 so last of VE.

    Hahaha, you are wrong bro. I have owned a Camry for 3 years and it got heaps of problems, thats why I changed to the 2011 SV6 and been driving for 3 years with very little problems then sold it couple of months ago. Thats why im planning to get the SSV next.

    Do you have any more details on this car ? Any pics ?

    Have you seen any service history ?

    Qld is a long way to go from the ACT if that doesn't check out.

    Yes man, i think it got full service history and it got 90000kms so far. It looks ok.
    Well, it will cost me a lot more to purchase the car in Queensland. If I go a head to purchase the car then the actual costs would be airline fares, accomodations, car rentals, pre-purchase inspection by a third party company (optional but for peace of mind). Pay money to the seller, drive back to Canberra (1200 kms or 12 hours drive at least) plus fuel refilling. After get back to Canberra, take the car for Road Worthy Inspection and Vehicle Indentity Check (compulsory by ACT law). Then go to shopfront transfer the name, buy a new registration, CTP, stamp duty... after that get a comprehensive insurance drive to a local car wash for detailings. NOW it’s ready for photo shoot and share on Facebook! OMG I’m so sleepy now, I wanna sleep !!!
