Hey Folks,

I'm super new to all this. Wanted to buy an Elise. I had my eyes on this one
Cars for Sale: 2011 Lotus Elise in Portland, OR 97230: Convertible Details - 358050008 - AutoTrader.com

Contrary to popular opinion, I actually like the new body kit.
But the carfax for this car shows it as a LEMON title which is scary.
But the details are good, it was just an instrument cluster failure and has been since replaced.

What do you guys feel about this one? I think it's quite over priced given that this is a lemon title. But again, I was looking around on cars.com at other cars and I do see a lot of 2005s for over 35k.

You opinions and advice is greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
-Puneet

Priced a little high but that's what an offer is about. The replaced instrument cluster is no big deal. BUT if you look at the lemon law side of it service had to do a very poor job because lemon law states returned for the same problem repeatedly.

I second Sturgeongeneral's motion, but no surprise there, we frequently think alike.
Most states require the car be repaired 3 times (or more) for the exact same fault before it is declared a lemon.
