Q: High mileage, Help avoid issues?

asked by on

so I just recently bought this car at the low price of 6500 dollars. I think this car is beautiful and would like to keep it for an extended period of time. The high mileage worries me however. how can I keep this car running perfect as long as possible? I got the car cheap so a change in the near future is definitely possible, but like I said, I think this car is beautiful, and this purchase was made out of want, not necessity. Thank you in advance
