Now, I’m speaking on average, with typical driving habits. Of course things vary.
I’m wondering this because I saw a friend who just purchased a used car with 98k on it. It didn’t seem like a bad deal, but him not knowing much about cars, couldn’t tell that it was in need of front end work. Now a month after purchase he’s out $1100.
If one was purchasing a car with around 100k, and the front end has never been serviced, should you use that to negotiate a lower price considering such work (struts, rods, bushings, etc.) is in the very near future?
