This a car designed back in 1994, and uses things like timing belt, that has been greatly phased out in modern cars.
If you're willing to go on youtube and learn how to fix cars on your own, then yeah, I'd say get it, as the double wishbone suspension with sway bars and rear disc brakes setup is a true bench mark for its time, even today. Modern repair shops charge $85/hour, and a lot of them have a side business of 'flipping junked cars', hence why there's barely any parking space at most of them.
Another advice I can give you is, see if the owner has done any major rear suspension work on the vehicle, if not, then don't be afraid to talk them down by $500 or so. Due to salt and water, I need have an angle grinder and drill on stand by, to take stuff apart, and be sure to apply anti-seize when putting it back together.
My car now, is money pit of epic proportion, thankfully, I know how to do the repairs myself, thanks to great resources on the internet.
