Default Should I buy this 2001 used Acura CL?

I found this really nice 2001 used Acura CL with 120k miles and its 4,500. It just passed emissions...It seemed to drive smoothly, and it has new tires on it, along with being V6, having leather seats, etc. The only minor issue I could see was some salt damage to the chrome wheels. Does this seem like a good buy? I really love Acuras so maybe my judgement is clouded.

take it to a mechanic to have the engine/tranny looked over and look at the under carriage to see if theres salt damage there too. If all is good, go for it.

Better have the later updated trans swapped into it already or that's probably a $3000 "investment" you'll be making sooner than later.

Does this car have service records. Have it checked out by a Honda/acura dealer or trusted mechanic. If it checks out offer $4,000. You can always go up but not more than the asking price. Good luck. My 06 tsx, bought new, has almost 157,000 problem free miles.
