Hello, thank you for writing in. It is nearly impossible to tell what kind of costs you are looking at with this old of a vehicle. 220,000 miles is a lot, but it sounds as if the car was maintained reasonably well. The tires are standard maintenance, and will cost a few hundred dollars depending on how many tires you are replacing and what kind of tires you want to put on it. The tail lamps are hard to price because they will need to be fixed to be street legal in most places, and a short can be time consuming to track down. You will either want to do it yourself, or be prepared for the labor costs of finding that issue. The windshield may also be of concern, as in some areas certain cracks are illegal, and it may need to be repaired right away. The condition of that windshield and the cost to repair it will need to be evaluated ASAP if your area has similar laws. While the coils and bushings may not be the top of the list, they can also be pricey depending on what type of replacement parts you obtain and who installs them for you. Consider actually price comparing options in your area (parts and labor), and then compare the price of repairs to the value of the vehicle (Kelly Bluebook or other similar pricing method). For a pre-purchase or safety inspection, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.
