Default 2004 Dream Cruiser 3

Hi guys. I will be looking at an 04 Dream cruiser 3 Tomorrow. Thinking about trading in my 05 N/A Touring. What do I need to check for - I am fairly familiar with my 05. Do all dream cruisers have turbos and what doo I need to check.

Dont have any other info on it as far as mileage or maintence.

Thanks.

The 2002 Dream Cruiser is NA. The rest are high output turbos.

Below is a photo showing all four 1st Gen Dream Cruisers. The DC3 is on the lower left.

My opinion - I would walk away from a turbo that did not have a steady diet of synthetic oil.

Well, took a look at it - Outside looks great. Inside, the center console is loose with radio missing and wires hanging. had 11 trouble codes with the key dance. Turbo makes a grinding noise when its spooling back down. I ran away as fast as I could

Sounds like it might be a real bargain. Find the main issues and many of those other trouble codes will likley go away. All this can be fixed with a little elbow grease and the knowledge available right her on this forum. I wish that car was in or near Arkansas. I'd be interested.
