How much is too much for a 2001 with 275k miles?

I am looking to buy a 2001 auto with 275k miles. Asking price is 3300 and it has some hail damage. Is this way overpriced, or a decent deal?

Thanks in advance

That's a lot for an 01 with that many miles.... Especially with hail damage

Is that drive-train milage, or chassis milage? If there's been good maintenance on everything but the body and the engine is in good shape, steering is tight, suspension is solid... I don't think $3300 is that bad actually. You'd want to ignore the hail damage of course, as that's probably a pricey fix.

In the end, you're the only one that can determine what's right for you. Don't buy something you're not comfortable with and you'll turn out alright. If you're happy with the purchase, that's all that really matters.

depends on other factors... based on the minimal information provided and no pics, yes, I would think that's pricey.

more info for a more accurate estimate please

Errr...I'd offer around the $2200-2500 range to be honest. I know these cars will go as long as it's been properly maintained, but still it's a lot of miles and with the hail damage...
