Default Looking at 99 GP with 122 K tonight .... any thoughts.

It has the 3.8 and appears to be a nice car. It would be for my wife as the Bonneville just doesn't do it for her. Anything I should be worried about. THey are asking $5995. Any thoughts on price or potential problems. Any help would be great. Looking after work. thanks

122k miles is too much on a 99. Leave it be.

It might be worth it to go and take a look, but thats a lot of miles for a 99

I'd be wary, still, it will give you an idea of what to look for and what to avoid

See if a maintainence log was kept. If all the regular scheduled maintainence was done it shouldnt be in too horrible a shape.

I would avoid this one. Other than the color i had almost the same car and it wasnt that great. The tranny had problems at 70k and it had a lot of other little things in addition to its shoddy build quality.
