Hey, Iam currently looking at possibly getting a 2001 Cadillac DTS, private sale with 196000k asking $6000. I am most likely going to look at it tomorrw and if it is in decent shape would offer at the most $5000. I am looking for any advice on things that can go wrong and such as i dont know alot about caddy's. i have read some customer reviews about things that have gone wrong and feel somewhat turned off however it is a beautiful car.......any suggestions would be appreciated

Jusy my opinion,but I would not buy it because of the high mileage,you would have to get it for less money, it maybe hard to resist, but dont buy it on looks alone.

Unless money is the prevailing factor here, I'd look for one with fewer miles. That should not be hard to find. Have you checked NADA or KBB to see what this one is worth?

Did the math.
U.S. translation = 121,716 miles for $4,853.58 USD or your plan is to offer him about $4000USD

Still getting up there in mileage for a lot of money. Check if the car has service records, due to the possibility of massive engine R/R and Transaxle problems. If the work was done already and the car has been maintained well, it could be well worth it. Especially if they accept your offered price instead of the asking P.
