First post!

I am thinking of buying a very low mileage 85 Fiero GT.....4k miles. I am located in Phoenix. Any thoughts about buying such a low mileage car? It is supposedly in new condition as it has been stored in a climate controlled facility. Haven't seen the Fiero in person but the photos seem to make it look absolutely 100% mint!

Are there any reasonably priced and good Fiero mechanics in Phoenix?

Thanks all!

I tend to shy away from very low mile vehicles as they usually will need lots of maintenance to be street reliable. Between a 2000 mile car and a 20,000 mile one, id prefer to buy the 20,000 mile one myself. Things tend to go bad on cars just setting...like brakes, engine oil seals, auto trans..... Controlled storage is a plus, but offers no guarantee.

Would love to see pictures. 4000K seems like somebody has at least taken enough care to move it once or twice a year.

A few years back I purchased a 18k mile car that spent the majority of it's life stored in a heated garage.

The car is nearly perfect and original. All I did was change the oil and I drive the car occasionally. The original Tires are not even cracked. It now has 21k or 22k miles.

Starts on a dime and I drive it around the block a few times a year and I go to a few car shows with it.

If it was stored properly I wouldn't be scared of the mileage at all. Just check it out like you would any other car and fix whatever needs to be fixed.
