About 170,000 miles.... 600,000 miles.. hmm. Well you guys have got me sold I think. I'm banking on the fact that the guy probably kept up with oil changes since it was still under warranty not too too long ago. Seemed like a lot of miles in only 6 years. Must have been almost all highway I'm assuming / hoping. Okay. I'm probably going to pull the trigger. Thanks guys.

Might as well give it a shot. Especially if it's just a 1 owner car and he's kept up on maintenance.

Highway miles are generally much easier (and faster to accumulate) than city miles. 270k kilometers doesn't sound like the engine's knocking on death's door. She's still got a lot of fight left.

At least take it for a test drive. You have nothing to lose.

I didn't include the whole story for simplicity reasons. It's a vehicle that was written off as it hit a deer I believe. Front end is busted up. Just the grille , headlamps etc. Should be able to fix it up for about 1200. Plus inspection costs etc. Worst case I figure it'll be 3 grand all said and done.. worst absolute case. Can't test drive it. But I'm going to pull the trigger I think. Thanks a lot for the info guys. Very helpful.

I'd have it inspected before you buy it. Just to make sure the damages are only cosmetic.
