Depends on price. Personally I would be very very careful with any car with 200k. Recommend compression test, and if it smokes now... no way. But sometimes an engine will last beyond 200k if it has had good maintenance history, that is critical

These motors blow head gaskets!! Only buy this vehicle if the head gaskets have been done and you have proof of this!! Personally I wouldn't buy it! HTH. -Jim
