Whats the most mileage you guys seen on a 98-99RS? And does anyone think the 98DOHC can hit 200k?

I used to have a 98 but didn't take care of it too well (young and stupid back then). I'm thinking of buying another one just cause I miss it so much. I found a few with 90K miles for around $9500. I'm just worried about the headgasket issue and what condition the tranny is in. You guys think I should go for it?

I'd be more worried about the oil pump seal and the timing belt. Check it for oil leaking from the front of the engine.

HG failure is always a possibility, although a lot of us have not had the problem (knock on wood)

I'll bet it has clutch shudder when cold. Mine does.

Check to see if the AC blows cold. That seems to go out frequently. Something to do with the location of the condenser and road debris, rocks?

Check the trunk for leaks. look under the spare for puddles or water damage to the particle board panel.

They're great cars aside from a few warts.
