First of all is it carbureted or FI?

with the carbs, well it's a hassle to begin with being carbed. If it's auto, please check the transmission fluid. hmm. . .what more. there's a good chance the speedometer doesnt' work, but don't worry about it. uhh. . .door locks usually break on these, but as long as you have the keys your good.

If it's a stick, well these cars are notorious for the emergency brakes not workign, the cables are a pain to change. So keep that in mind. Si's have the proble with the ecu light going off, from what i've heard/read it isn't really a problem. Usually something little which isnt' a big deal. i mean these cars are over 20 years old. hmm make sure it isn't TOO rusted out. 230K miles is quite a bit too, maybe you wanna wait on something that's a little less used. . .
