    Hey guys, I found a white 1993 GMC typhoon at a local dealership the other day and I'm thinking of buying it. Mostly I'm thinking about buying it because even though it is older than my black 1995 chevy tahoe 2-door, it is way nicer and more of what I want (mostly because I'm a demon-speeding). What do you guys think of that truck, and are there any problems with these cars that I should know of?

    more info on the truck:
    White 1993 GMC typhoon
    black leather interior
    2-door sports SUV
    turbo-charged 4.3 litre V6 engine
    700R4 4-speed automatic transmission
    all wheel drive
    in really good shape

    please respond as soon as possible, I'm trying to buy this truck quickly before someone else does.

    that better have super low miles and full show quality for that price regardless of how rare they are, as they usually are beaten to death or modded, not to mention the insurance could be pretty high for it. i would for sure be checking underneath the truck at that drive train. That AWD in those cant be cheap to fix as that a lot of power to handle

    Like vnjc96 says, I hope the mileage is low. Although those trucks are rare the value isnt as high as their asking price unless its super low mileage.
    Before you buy it I'd get it up on a lift, run diagnostics, and have a general check over by a knowledgeable mechanic. Most of the Cyclone and Typhoon trucks/SUV's were run hard.
    They didnt really have any issues as much as they were just beat on because they were fast vehicles, not many people bought them and just drove them to church on Sunday while garaging them the rest of the week.

    actually it only has 52,000 miles and doesn't appear to be modded. it looks like the last owner either had kids that he shuttled around in it or he was really into toy trains in the back seat of his truck (that pervert). The interior is in really great shape, better than the interior in my 1995 chevy tahoe two door, and I baby that car. It has been repainted though, there is white overspray on the fuel tank. I'd get a carfax report on it before buying it, and I would put it on a lift also. but I am really into this car mostly because it is like my current vehicle, except it should drive a bit faster and more like a car, which would be much appreciated.

    thanks for your input guys! if any one has any more to add, please go ahead.
