Considering a 2013 Chevy Equinox LT V6 with 120000 miles, clear Carfax, one owner for 8900 cash. Good deal? Would the overall maintenance be worth it? Thank you!

Thank you for writing in. The first thing to consider is that it is a "high mileage" car. If you have good maintenance records, you can worry less about the mileage. However, there are quite a few systems that will need to be serviced around this mileage, and you will want to see how many of those procedures have been performed. Start by checking the owner's manual, as it has the best maintenance schedule. The fact it is a one owner vehicle is a huge plus, but that also depends on how that person drove the vehicle and how well they maintained it. The price is a little high in my opinion, and I think you may have some negotiating room when it comes to the maintenance that will need to be done soon. See if you can get the price dropped a few hundred dollars. Good luck!
