looking at an 05 on Friday

I am looking to buy a Wee in the next few days. Going to look at an 05 with 117 miles on Friday. Thing is squeaky clean by the pictures. Its only drawback is that is lowered so I'll be searching for factory suspension links.

I called the dealership yesterday to ensure we were on the same page on financing. He had told me the day before that they had "good deals" on financing. Best he could do at the dealer was 10%!! I told him no thanks, and am now working on the pricing on a 2013 hold over with a local dealer at 0%. I guess its what I should have done in the first place.

How in the world does a 2005 exist with only 117 miles? It would still have its original tank of gas.

This must be it.

2005 Suzuki VSTROM 650 R/J PERFORMANCE INC. Ottumwa, IA (641) 684-8400

Seems odd to have so few miles.

Plus, for this money you can find 2010 or 2011 with 1000 miles on it and ABS.
