i was thinking battery also.
when i got my 2000es in 08, the salesman said, the old guy that drove it only checked his cow's now an then. it did have low hours, an miles. i want to say, 1200 miles. the salesman left out the part, where the old mans wife only drove the car to church on Sundays.. the old lady must ave been using the atv i got, when the front bumper got pushed in some. i did contribute more later on..save time and money, buy a manual shift, and never...EVER trust the guy when he says it ran fine when I parked it...lol.
