No reported damage. It was a company vehicle registered in Pittsburgh.
Better be a heck of a warratny!
Company vehicle also means very regular maintenance on the dot! And the miles are very likely mostly highway miles.

This looks to be a good car that will last you quite a long time. Drive it, see how she feels, listen carefully. Lift the hood while it'* idling, etc. You know what to do.

Just wanted to point out the on the clock regular maintenance that fleet vehicles get.

These are very good points. I was more concerned on how the dirver/drivers treated it.
You know what I mean!! I know I would probably have more fun in a company car than my own.

an 03 with high miles means that it had many miles/yr which likely means almost all highway miles.

I know my 00 SE is right under 120k right now and still holding up strong. only had to do a couple repairs on it since i have owned it, no more than maybe 3-400 in parts not including tires and brakes (bought in March 04 w/55k on it)

With that many miles I'll be curious to see how many miles the 4 year warranty covers. I'd definitely get some solid paperwork on that warranty. Good luck!

Make sure to look at everything VERY closely. Carfax is clean on mine, but I found out that quite a few front parts have been replaced. Just a small tip. Really doesn't degrade from the car if they did it right, but still is good to know!

Looks like a good car to me! I would hit that!!! And yeah, definitely find out what the warranty covers.

What are the tranny'* like on the 03'*? I know that seems to be around the "magic number" for a rebuid on an older model (like mine). My father in law had on 05 for less than a year, he got rid of it because it was back at the garage every other month.

Also, still haven't heard back from the dealer yet!
