Default newb advise ??

I'm looking at an '06 Touring in the morning. Listed as having 16500 miles for $9900.00 Is this a good price ??? Should I be on the look out for anything special ?? With only 16K there shouldn't be any thing wrong with it. What are the issues that I could expect as the car ages ?? I usually keep a vehicle 'till it hits 150k. Thanks to all in advance.

$9900 sounds like a reasonable price for an 06' with that many miles. What kind of options does the vehicle include?

Not sure on that either. It is at a Chrysler dealer. The only Chrysler dealer in this area that I haven't heard any negative comments about. I'll post here tomorrow after the chat & test drive with an update.

The Touring is one step up from the base model. That's not a bad thing tho. We had a Limited 2006 that we traded in for the 2008 Touring. There is a few things that the '06 had that the '08 doesn't. No lock on the glove compartment, no power outlet under the armrest, no garage opener on the sun visor. The things we were used to and didn't notice until we needed them.

The dealer allowed me $7,900 on a trade, '06 had 41K. I thought that was fair.
I had no problems with it, always took it to the dealer for service. I had put ceramic front pads, performance wires & new Champion Platinum plugs.
