I didn't include the '04 model year in the above list because there were fewer "Calif Emissions" states in that year [I don't know for sure, but I think only Calif & Mass (anybody else out there know which ones for sure?)}. I don't know if the extra years & miles applied to the '01-'03 "classic" (your car) though (anybody else know this answer for sure?). Good luck!!

Check to see what the dealership would give you for a trade in.
