Is it safe to buy a vehicle with 122,000 miles? Or will it just become a money pit?

it all depends on the condition of the vehicle. a well-maintained vehicle can last several hundred thousand miles. proper preventative maintenance is cheaper in the long run. newer vehicles last much longer than vehicles built even 10 years ago.

The mileage is excessive on this vehicle. About 24,000 per year. Normal is between 10,000 and 15,000 per year. On the other hand if these are highway miles it's a safer bet. Highway miles are easier on a vehicle. HTH. -Jim
