I have 191-192k on my 2009 4.6 Genesis. I haven't had any major mechanical issues with it and the interior and exterior are still in good shape for it's age/miles.

I know it's dependent on a lot of things but to me $3500 seems a little on the cheap side unless there are issues that need to be addressed. But it might just be that you found a good deal too. Do you have a link to the ad for the car?

Get it checked over. No matter what brand of car, when you have that many miles, things can go wrong. Expensive things. Or it can go another 100k with nothing major. There was that million mile Elantra, maybe this will be the same.

thats impressive, also sounds like a great price. but yeah id get it looked over. make sure no major issues at the same time you cant expect everything to be perfect.

Its most likely going to need major maintenance services. Ie. Approx. cost - Spark plugs $10.00 each, fuel filter and fuel tank air filter 400.00, Transmission service 400.00 to 800.00 including pan/filter replaced, driveshaft center bearing 300.00, Rear diff. oil replaced 50.00, Brakes ?
That said , we put over 220,000 miles on our 2011 4.6 and it was a near perfect car with proper maintenance. traded it because the rear diff developed a good bit of lash due to the miles. Rear end was going to cost 2000.00 to 3000.00 including labor. If it was going to be only an around town commuter we would have kept it and not worried about the rear diff. lash.

If you're able to do the work yourself a lot of that stuff is relatively cheap. NGK 4469 spark plugs are $5 a piece. Trans filter and drain/refill was $170 (for ZF 6 speed), rear diff fluid is $20-$30. Like any high mileage car it all depends on how it was previously maintained.

AGREE ! if you can do the work yourself it would save you lots. i know our labor rate is $145 hr.
