Seems like a good deal to me. I am going to go through all of the service records when I head over to the dealership. I wonder if those that have the mechanical issues are those that don't follow the service recommendations or if things wear out regardless. For instance, every car I have owned, some with 200k miles on them have never needed the valve cover gaskets changed. Seems like these cars just are destined for things to start leaking. The fact that the car has 80k on it concerns me a bit. I will have to confirm whether the coolant pipe job has been done or I will have to factor that into my negotiations as the job is "when" rather than "if".
