Default Should I buy 04 Acura TL for 9k?

Car has 113k miles. Is it worth the price? Should I get it?

How clean is it ? I just bought a 06 and while it has 150 k on it , was very ,very clean "show room chassis"... $8500 out the door , fully loaded... Was a lot of highway time (i could tell , by the trip log ) .. Be sure to get all records and whatever you by "change the tranny fluid" Even if they said , they just did it.. Acura trannies are quick to fail.. At 113k the timing belt , water pump should of just been replaced at 100 k ,+ or- 10,000.. Good luck and its a great ride to own

Take it for a test drive. If RPM's jumps just for one moment during acceleration (not hard acceleration), do not buy.

With higher mileage cars, you are prone to buy someone else's trash. Especially with the known problem of TL's premature transmission failure. Look down the grill where you should see the big radiator attached behind the support. If you don't spot a smaller radiator like component anywhere, I'd be VERY weary. Should probably ask if any transmission work was done, and if not, walk away, you will be out another 3k.
