yea that car was probably a salesman or something of the like. I high milage highway car is almost the same as a low milage stop and start car, in engine wear, at least. stop and start really kills the engine, muchmore than runs all the time

I would say its overpriced no matter how it was taken care of, and also it really doesn't matter how many miles someone puts on a car, that doesn't have anything to do with how good they take care of them. That price is pretty steep IMO, I would say its worth about $6k or maybe a little more.

I'd watch out with that many miles. My car is a 97' with only 112K on it and it has its fair share of quirks. I've had to replace the fuel sending unit and fuel pump in the 4K i've owned it. Thankfully, that $900 job was taken care of by my warrenty company. Now I need to replace my */C coupler and a few gaskets to stop minor oil leaks. At that mileage i'd have that car dynoed and a compression test run on each cylinder. Make sure the tranny is in top shape as well. And good lord bring that price down. I paid only $5200 for my car.
