Hello,

I am looking at an 08 XR with 144k miles on it. I used to own a 13 Acadia, and I loved it. I dont want to spend the $$ on a newer one so I am interested in the Outlook. I have a few questions. This Outlook has a clean carfax with 2 owners. It is very clean as well. FWD. Its priced under 6K

Should I be concerned about the mileage?

What typical lifespan (mileage) should I expect?

I change my oil every 3k miles, and take care of my cars. I am really picky when I purchase an older car.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Here's what happened with me. I to bought a clean 2008 Outlook. Just over 200,000 on it. No rust above it or the frame. Timing chains (3) had been replaced. Got a fair price on it. After 3 weeks the motor went out. I do my own work. So I bought a brand new motor and installed it. Sure I have more in it but its a sound vehicle now. I know it well and that's what I like. Would I do it again. Yes. I have read a lot about the 3.5 and the timing chains (3) are and issue . Those motors need to have the oil changed when it's time and not over.
