Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I'm trying to buy this 2006 Civic Hybrid, and I was told the battery pack was recently replaced.  It has 150,000 miles, engine sounds good, should I go for it?
Do you think it would bring a lot of expensive maintenance?

I have just two words for you WALK AWAY! If I bought a car with 150K NOT! it would have to be flawlessly mint, a one owner never in an accident and from a car nut owner preferably around 50-60 years old who had the means $ to service it "only" at the dealer from day1 and has every single service record invoice for all oil changes/rotations/balancing and any other services! Was timing belt replaced around 70-80K? Were shocks replaced around 80K? Where wheel bearings ball joints replaced, new rotors? How's the exhaust rusted? or replaced? Windshield original or replaced? I know you don't have all these answers. Listen, by 85K all these things have been done on a car so imagine! at 150K what you save at the front end you'll waste at the back end! Like I said: W- a- l- k A- w- a- y! my friend....
