What's Wrong with This Car?

So I got it in my head recently that instead of trying to make the best out of the LT Sedan I bought off my parents, I could trade it in for an SS and actually be happy. I found a car on autotrader and it just seems really cheap to me. Going off of the "good" blue book rating, for me to trade my car in and buy this one (mind you - using sticker price numbers here, and that's the fools price) I would only have to pay like $1300. I guess my question boils down to, should I be concerned that this car is this cheap? I understand a car with 92,000 miles is unpredictable depending on the previous owner. What do you guys think?

did you ask for a carfax? that's about right for the price. maybe a little on the cheaper side but that could be due to maybe needing suspension or not so pristine interior

Well looks like someone snatched it up bc it's not even listed anymore. Guess it was a good deal.

I'm just in the idea phase at this point, so no, haven't carfaxed yet. That is a good point though, maybe there are small underlying things like suspension. Also, IDGAF about the interior, I just wanna go fast.

I'll rephrase, faster* than what I'm doing now. Like I said, the LT sedan just isn't cutting it anymore. I would actually prefer to find an SS/TC, even if it was way more expensive.
