Hello. If you are getting that vehicle for only $1900 then that is a good deal. If the vehicle is well maintained then it should last for quite some time. I have had a lot of these vehicle last over 300,000 miles as long as the fluids are changed regularly. If you are serious about buying the car, I would recommend having a certified mechanic conduct a pre-purchase inspection of the vehicle to be sure there aren’t any severe underlying problems you might not be aware of.
