Question Pontiac G8 GT at 175k Miles Issues?

Hi all, started obsessing over this car a while ago but sadly my income isn't fantastic. However one in my area is selling for $8k, problem is the mileage is over 175k. I haven't seen it in person, is it even worth looking into? Only information owner gives is "All scheduled maintenance no accidents"

I don't want to make an impulsive decision, because obviously cars tend to fall apart at this range, so I was just wondering what everyone's take is on this.

What's wrong with it? That's not much more than what I'm asking for my V6. If it checks out good, it's a great price. With lower miles it would be a $14-15K car.

If you are balling on a budget. I'd say wait. Some parts for these cars can be expensive. Or sometimes non existent. Definitely take her to a mechanic if you plan on buying it. Good luck!

100% need to spend the 50-100 to have a mechanic look it over. Guy I know sold his for around 14-15k with 160k+ miles but it had an intake and some exhaust work and wheels.

PM me if you have a trunk liner for sale!
