Feedback/Opinion

I am still in the market for my D90, so I am always searching. Please take a look at these pics and post what you think. The interior rust looks like it went swimming. CARFAX is clean, but it spent time in Norwalk, CT. So maybe a Sandy victim?

I think its a defender ... I wouldn't pay near $37k for it ... mid $20's is where I see it.

If the interior looks like that lord only knows what the underneath looks like.

It was already overpriced the last time it was for sale.

This one (not mine) was last offered by Highline Wholesale in Ohio and now a dealership in NJ has it for sale for 8k more. Strange rust is places. Did they just take a grinder to the rear bumper to highlight the rust, take off the front grille guard, and raise the price? SALDV2280SA963133

Previous listing:

At $30,870

Looks like bits and pieces may have been replaced recently. Could be someone started down the path of refurb and lost the stomach for it or maybe someone's attempt to stage it for sale.

Ignore the sales price for a moment;
Determine what your max budget is for a green ST D90;
Work with an expert who is willing to put the time and effort into a proper live inspection;
Price out what it will cost to get it where you want it;
Subtract the cost to repair from your budget and make an offer;
If he balks walk away and think about it.

All way easier to say than do; but this is probably the course of action you should take on a unknow D90.

No pictures of bulkhead footwell area, lots of rust on screws, no pics of crossmember, cage supports, door bottoms, etc.

All red flags, IMHO.

Clay, very well put. As I am not about to make an emotional purchase, I think I will just pass. Too many red flags that everyone here is confirming. To me it looks like multiple dealers simply bought it at auction, realized what they actually got, and now are trying to unload their problem on someone else. This one just seems so blantent.

So many scams and hope anyone interested in this one will do their research.

These guys know what they're talking about, but remember NAS D90's are almost 20 yrs old by now and that type of rust will happen on exposed steel in 20 years. In 5 if if it has lived its life near saltwater.

Are these the only pics you've got? Have you actually inspected the truck?'

I'd be scared of just the minimal rust I see around the seats, hinges, firewall up behind the heat controls, and whatever is going on with the rear crossmember.
Get better pics and someone with a better eye than you or I will really dissect them.
