Hi all, I am considering to buy a 2007 Honda CR-V EX with 195k mileage. The owner has had the car for the last 8 years and she says that she well-maintained the car and provides service records (most of them are in Honda service). She recently changed the battery and starter once the car begins to start slow in winter. She says there is no issue with the car.
I checked the CARFAX and there is no accident etc. and regular services seems to be made on time. The only thing is there is a "damage reported" and the owner said that a deer struck to the back of the car and left a baseball size dent and she later on has that pulled out. Comes with rooftop bars and trailer hitch. The price is $4000.
I know high-mileage comes with risks but I like CR-V very much and it is perfect for my type of person who goes hiking, fishing etc. At the same time, I am grad student with a limited income, so have no money to invest in a second car for now if this one turns out bad.
Considering all, would you get into this deal? What would you suggest me to look for? Thank you for your advice in advance.
P.S. This is my first posting and I hope I am not violating any forum rules
