    2001 XPL info needed...

    I am looking at a 2001 XPL in a few days. I can pick it up for $2500, no trailer. It is completely stock and in mint condition. Does not have any damage or scratches, looks like new. It is said to have 100 hours on it, is the an hour-meter on this year? Is $2500 a good price for one in excellent condition without the trailer? Also what should I check out on it when I go to see it and test ride it? Thanks

    no hour meter only way to check it is to take it to the dealer.
    check if the vts works, fuel gauges, and make sure the grey fuel lines have been replaced.

    thats a fair price, since it does not include a trailer.

    Do you think it is a fair price or a good price, should I offer less? Also what are the steps to check the compression? Thanks

    you can pick up a compression gauge at harbor freight for like 14 bucks, remove one spark plug at the time, and hold the throttle wide open, crank it until the gauges maxes out, dont forget to remove the spark plug wires. the engine must be cold when testing. Do not tell the seller you will plan on doing a compression test cause he could easily add oil to the cilinders to give you a higher reading, compression should be around 130 to 140
