Re: 2007 Laguna FSH cheap but 165,000 miles
I wouldn't be put off the car itself (unreliable cars rarely do high-mileages, for good reason).
But the type of driving is something else; motorway miles mean probably only one cold-start per day, little clutch or gear wear, and the brakes get a fairly easy life. Compare that with a minicab in an urban environment & you'll see my point.
I'd be tempted to put in a cheeky price, only if the car otherwise seems 'right' and there's a huge amount of receipts & s/history - the seller may just accept it. (especially if you explain about the car's true value)
Best of luck whatever you decide.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
