    Depends. If losing 1500 is not a major loss to your budget or income, take the risk. If you do, change all the fluids including the tranny by dropping the tranny pan and replacing the filter. We have a '94 with 154,000 & it runs great. Intend to keep it. Good Luck. :)

    Yes Panthers are known to go much more, I've sold 2 of mine with over 250k still running strong, but so much depends on how it was maintained. If you think it's nice and tight, why not? Worst case it's heavy and scrap prices are up :D

    Also, try to find out how the car was driven. For example, 200k highway miles is not as hard on the engine as 200k city miles where the engine would be idling a lot but not racking up the miles. Good luck.

    I have found that Town Cars with 200k on them may have issues with: ball joints, water pumps (the blades start getting thin on the impeller), rear air bags and associated pump, leaking power steering pumps, shuddering transmission, and A/C blend door actuator. Unless you have some tools, can do a little work on cars and have the time, buying one with 200k, I would not recommend.
