I need to buy a car, cash no loan, and am not a car-person. I have found a 2001 Toyota Solara SLE being sold from a mechanics shop with 135k miles for $5500. He said the only thing that was replaced was the motor which now has 75k miles on it. Supposedly clean title, although I’d get a carfax on it. Drove well. I know Toyotas can last into 200k. Wondering if the other non-replaced items will be worrisome at 135k even though the motor is half that?
I won’t be driving it all that much, maybe 6k a year. However, I live in New Orleans and need a car that will be reliable should I have to evacuate again.
Worth buying for a person that doesn’t tinker with cars?
Thanks for your help!
