A. Is it worth 3000?
What kind of life should i expect?(wife drives like an old lady too)
What are things i should be concerned with mechanically?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, and i will be scouring older posts as well. So any that you recommend, just point me in the right direction.
Not sure if you have decided on the car or not, but as far as what it's worth, you can go to KBB.COM and input the vehicle info and you will get an idea of what the value on a vehicle like that is.
Life expectancy is all relevant to past and future driving conditions, maintenence etc. IMO it sounds like it hasn't been abused and probably maintained on a regular basis.
Regarding mechanical concerns, I have not owned one myself but you will likely find info on the forum from people who own this vehicle and can give you some insight.
