2001 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe: Good idea to buy one with 100K miles already on it?
I have about $10,000 I can spend on a used car, and I have always wanted something really sporty. Naturally that led me to Ford Mustangs.
I've found a 2001 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe, automatic, great condition. The dealer's price is $7000, and I'm sure I can get that down. My main issue is whether it's a good idea to buy a used Mustang that already has 100,000 miles on it or not.
I haven't test driven it yet, don't know details like the timing belt, tires, battery, etc and when they were changed. I have test driven another Ford Mustang before and really liked it (but that was an '05 with 120K already on it).
From what you know about Mustangs, would you buy one used with that much mileage, and at a price of $6000-$7000?
