Default What problems could I expect to encounter if I bought this Acura?

2000TL with 240000 miles. what would you say this car should be worth and what kinda mechanical problems could possibly arise at this high mileage? i have never owned a acura

The transmissions were bad on these cars, so check to see if it's been replaced with a new one.

If it's an automatic, possible transmission problems, but they should have already happened long ago.The car isn't worth much, because it doesn't have that long left to live - maybe 100,000 miles if you are very very lucky.Leaks are problems with high mileage cars. Oil leaks, transmission leaks, etc. Also, suspension parts such as ball joints might be very suspect on a car this age.As far as longevity, Acura will be one of the best. It just has a lot of miles. If the price works for you, and it checks out okay, then it may be fine. Just remember to pay close attention to anything that goes wrong, and get it fixed right away. Your trade-off for the low price is that you will have to pay closer attention to service details, which will cost you.Good luck!
