Well, I finally found my Viper. Shes a 2000 model GTS steel gray with silver stripes. 15k miles. Just figured I would let you guys know. Any potential things I should note about 2000 year cars? Im absolutely ecstatic, I'm counting down the days!

cheers!

Some of the 2000's had an oil consumption problem, but not all of them had this. Check the build date on your car, i cant remember when the cut-off was, so you're going to have to do a search as im a bit lazy to do it for you right now.


BTW, congratulations, and dont run it into the ditch.


Some of the early 2000's ran an experimental liner coating that didn't let the rings seat. Check the door jamb sticker and look for the MDH (month, day, hour) of manufacture. I think most of the affected cars were built before November or thereabouts. (End quote: GTS DEAN)

You can usually find the clears on e-bay.

Congrats. Best color evar!

Enjoy your new beast!

Most important advice I can give:

Make sure the wheels are straight before mashing the pedal

Trust me I learned this one from experience.

My 2000 had the oil consumption problem, on the drivers side door jam is the build date, if built 11/99 or earlier you "may" have the problem, after that date don't worry. I was burning a quart every 150 miles, no recall was issued.

There is recall 999 that braces your front end frame! Ask seller if he has done this, potentually hazardous situation, especially if you decide to roadrace the car. Feel free to email me at [email protected] if you have more questions.
