That's probably $4000 more than it's worth.

Absolutely not. I think whoever is selling the car is asking way too much. I would keep looking if I were you. Also, look up the value of the car in KBB.

140,000 miles is a little over the average for that year the average should be around 120,000 or so but if the car has been well maintained and serviced regularly at the proper times and there are no major mechanical issues then it should be ok. even though the price does seem kind of high for that car and year.

No i wouldnt do it because its a dealership there going to want to sale it to you even if its in a bad shape. Too much miles also go for a low milege car a lot of cars out there are worth seven grand in only 60,000 miles DONT DO IT ur gettin screwed

Dont do it. That car has waaaaayy too many miles to be charging 7000. Its not worth it and you can find newer cars with less mileage for cheaper

I hate buying from dealerships. Not only do you have to pay ten tons of taxes, you also have to pay way more than the car is worth because that's just how that business works. Car dealerships are always going to charge way over what a car is worth. I would go with a private seller and have the car checked out by a mechanic.
