Should I buy a 2003 with 135k?

I'm looking to buy a Mustang its a 2003 v6 with 135 thousand miles. I'm wanting it to last 3-4 more years. Do you guys think its too much of a gamble with it having that many miles? I mean I know it really depends on maintenance but for example if it had 200k most people would definitely say no dont buy it. So would you guys think 135 is too many?

I don't think it's too many miles, like you said it really depends on how it has been maintained and treated.


Engine mods - all stock, trust me, wanna run??!!!

How much is it selling for? 135k is not that bad for a 2003

Imo it depends on the condition of the car is in right now.
Have a thorough test drive! you can tell a lot about the suspension, transmission, tire wear and alignment
Look under it and check for OEM Parts, you might have to replace them soon

Looks fair, i'd go and take a look at it.
For the meantime flag it for spam so no one else can see it.
That's what i did with mine and had 3 weeks to think about it lol

Mine was about 2000 below market value on cargus, not counting the staggered 20' tires with tsw wheels and 1 borla exhaust..

I've had mine for 119k so far, so you'll definitel be able to get miles on it.

This is a thread from 2016 just FYI. Looks like Stg1Rsh brought it back in September of this year, but unless the OP comes back to give us that 3 year update I would say this thread is closed...

(I have owned a few non Mustang cars over the years as well, but always try to have a Mustang with it or come quickly back to a Mustang!)
