Default In the market for a PT Cruiser wondering if this is a good deal.

Hello, I've been on the hunt for a PT Cruiser for some time now. I just found this Craig's list add and was wondering if it was a good deal. My main question is how PT Cruisers handle after gaining so many miles. Is 172,000 an extreme amount for a PT Cruiser, and how do they hold up after getting to that point?

Looks great, depends in the kind of miles. Highway or town. Like he said how well maintenance was done. What had been done recently. I'm driving one with a little more than that. I would drive it anywhere. Belts been changed about 6k ago. The last owner said. He maintained it well.

Looking at other PT in the area, I know where I'm going when I sell mine...no one seems to know about KBB in NC.
