Without ever actually seeing in person or driving a used car, would you ever consider buying a 2006 Ford Taurus with 160,000 miles but for a very low price of $2k? Seller promises "drives nice and burns no oil."

KBB shows $3000 - $3400. The price is low so you either found a great deal or something is wrong with the car. How far away is it? How much to ship it to you?

Sellers don't always disclose everything. I am not accusing this particular seller of that but it happens everyday

you could do some home work by obtaining a carfax on the car, also ake sure it was not in any kind of floods.

typo (make)not ake, ight I add that not everything is going to show up on the carfax, but anything major will, when in doubt!!!! check it out.

The car is only about 25 miles from me, but I just talked to the owner and he said he lowered the price because AC does not blow cold, even after putting in $250 a few months ago, he also stated that he has put in over $8k into the car but that everything works very well..all power including sun roof..and most of the high mileage was multiple trips too and from Vegas.

See it, drive it and bring cash. It's $1000 under the book price.

Doesn't matter what the seller says, I'd always pay to have my mechanic take a look at the vehicle to make sure it's in nirmal shape for it's age, to catch anything that could become a problem down the road on my dime. The money saved by paying less up front can more than be offset by hidden problems later that you didn't bother to check on. Paying a mechanic you trust for 30-60 minutes of their time is a small cost given the peace of mind it gives. Bear in mind that even if the car is in great shape for it's age, it's old enough that things will need replacing due to age (some of them quite expensive, and a significant % of the price of the car overall), so keep in mind that that will be your problem to solve, and that's even if the car is in good shape. ......
