Would you buy a used car that has 130,000 miles on it?
I am looking into buying a used car, that seems to have been well maintained by the owner (it is the original owner – he has all the receipts for maintence, and it has never been in an accident. Price would be around the blue book value). I can use the VIN number to verify all of this…the only potential problem seems to be that it has 129,000 miles. I don’t plan to drive it much – so will not likely put that many more miles on the car. But how much is too much? In your opinion, is a car with 129,000 miles on it a bad purchase (if the car seems to be in good condition)? In this case, the car is a 2004 Carolla, but I’m also curious as to people’s thoughts in general since I may look at other cars that have about that many miles.
