Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I just lost my Kia to a broken timing belt.  I'm going to look at an "87 Pathfinder  - V-6 4X4 w/200,000 mi. today.  Good idea?  Thanks.

The 6cyl uses a timing belt but the 4cyl uses a timing chain. It is supposed to be replaced every 60,000 miles or every 48 months. It is an interference engine so make sure it has been replaced recently.
