    how many miles is too many

    I'm looking at a 2000 T/A with 98,000 miles for $9,800. the car is in mint condition in the interior and exterior and there is allegedly no mechanical problem. Am I asking for problems with this many miles, or is it fine.

    i have a friend with 160k So you should be fine. But that price is a bit high - for 98k i'd say 8000 tops.

    hell you got some more serious driving let on it, just watch out for the trans and rear, but get them down to 7500 or lower.

    I had to chime in here I had a 1986 Camaro when I sold it I had put 363,000 miles on it. I just sold my chevy truck it just hit 305,000 miles both of these vehicles still were running fantastic when I sold them the only maintenance was changing the water pumps as they went out. All I can say is change that oil and I did treat them with slick 50 been using it for 15 years.

    thats an awesome deal for a trans am. if u can get any ls1 that runs and drives and is in decent shape for under $10,000 then its a good deal. my friends got a 94 z28 with 160,000 on it and it just ran a 13.9 pretty much stock

    If the car looks taken care of in the interior and the paint,body,engine bay[dirty/.... not just dusty] are things to watch out for[wouldn't buy one with a greasy engine]...........you will b fine--check EVERYTHING you can--change fluids---get sfc's if it does not have them---change engine oil a couple times right away..clean injectors..rear end fluid....brakes.definitly check wear on rotors and pads......power steering...all mounts[engine,tranny]..etc...good cars in my book... I would spend a 1,000$ on a used car right away for peace of mind...

    thanks for all the advice, I'm going to check it out tommorow and see if I can trade my 02 RSX type-s for it (I'm a reformed ricer) also it is not a ws6 just a TA.

    I had muscle since I first got my licence i had a 79' rally sport w/ a 383 and a 99' z28, The 99' was a piece of crap and I swore off American cars for the last 6 months, the Acura is fun but it's not the same, even though the 8 thousand rpm redline is nice, I miss having more than 142 P/F of torque, and I'm sick of getting my ass kicked by stock wrx's

    PS - Mine is for sale for $10,500 or best offer. I live in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles. The car is a 1999 with 71k and was very lightly driven, honestly. Few mods - Granatelli MAF, Intake, Flowmaster, ROH 17" x 9.5" aluminum rims, Mecham 6" oval tips. Email me if anyone is interested.
