That many miles on a 2006 means almost no city stop-and-go driving, which is a good thing but regardless, that's a lot of miles and very unpredictable on what can/will happen. Check service history, and if none can be produced avoid it. But if price is right..who knows?

Ask the seller for records. That's for how well it was taken care of, but the mileage alone indicates it has been well-tended to. If neglected it would not have lasted that many miles. But for a history of if it has ever been crashed or something serious, a CarFax, but that will cost you $40

Commercial 18 wheeler trucks are made for long miles of one million or more. They are made with strong expensive parts that are built to last. My brother has been driving long haul truck since 1970. After every long drive of a week or more, he has the engine oil changed and a complete bumper to bumper safety check done and parts replaced with top parts. He does spend a bit for the servicing but has never lost a load due to breakdowns. He trades in his trucks after 1.5 million miles, and because of his servicing records, gets what he paid for it, in trade ins. Cars are made to last just over 100,000 miles or 5 to 7 years of normal driving. The parts in the cars are not as strong as commercial trucks, so expect parts to wear out. The suspension, motor, electronics, brakes, bearings, even heater A/C motors and all components. If there is a good service record, look at what has been replaced and when. A car that old with that many miles on it, expect to be replacing parts. Some car parts are made to just fix it, and others to fix and last. Facing a $1,000 repair bill, a lot of people will opt for the $750 bill and put in lesser quality parts. So be careful of what you want/get. There are a lot of good low mileage cars out there if you have the time and patients to look for them. I'd not buy the car even if it was given to me, as I know from past experience, they will cost money to maintain.

Ah for some reason takes me back to days of old, when I was introduced to a machine in 1979 that gets a good going over every 200 hours. To the tune of $15,000 (1980 dollars). This machine rivals the best of today. You can leave Tampa Fla. and arrive in Phoenix Az. before you departed. One non-stop re-fueling (have to slow to 250 knots for a few minutes) Cost only $18 Million each, but a variety of colors to choose from!

FordNut I bet it was not the Pinto? Black bird? Left California early in the morning, refueled above Georgia, landed in NAS Jax for breakfast, then returned to California for an early lunch. That was in 1966. The F-4 could do what you said, as long as the duel afterburners were not engaged. That was the 427 Corvette of the sky ways. Big, loud, and fast.

I'm from the old days, A-4, F-8, A-7, F105 (AF) B-52, F-111, Hewie, CH<-46, CH 57, and the A-1s. F-16s were just coming in at the time I left. They were fast, quick, and all tricked out. Power windows, power steering, power seats, and a great automatic. Made the 4-4 look and act like a 51 Ford Custom.

Just a little before me. I am 61 and was already at Luke when the F-16's began to arrive to stay in early 80's just before I left. But there were a few that stopped by on the way to Edwards, that's when I meant 'introduced'. I was really taken by them, so small, with a full load of ordinance they look like I'm glad you're on my side.

I just turned 69 and was in Viet Nam in 68-69. While stationed there a new jet fighter with twin horizontal stabilizers flew into the base. It was to replace the F-4. I couldn't find any aircraft that was flown before 74 that looked like it. I thought it was the F-15. I got out of the Marines in 71 and the F-4 was still the work horse along with the A-4. Pinkeyes, have you made a decision on the old tired high mileage car yet?
