Either one looks good, I'd take the one with 117k personally, as those 3.0 mitsu engines are very reliable. If I were you I'd look for a manual though, much more fun

Kinda sounds like the decision has already been made with you price point. I doubt they would come down $1500 even if you showed up with cash. Especially considering that it does actually book at $6500
