Default Is 155K Miles, too much?

Hey guys and gals, I found a 13 GT for a really good price but it has 155k miles.

If it drives good, leaks nothing and oil smells good, should I jump on it?

Depends on "really good price". If all dash icons prove out when key turned on (watch them! It's the first thing advisors do when taking in a trade-in), test drive feeling brakes, check all lighting, drive it far enough if possible to find out if it's going to throw a CEL. If you don't care that much about body & finish, ignore that; they don't make the damned thing run.

If price is REALLY attractive, try to find out WHY! Comfortable with it, buy it! imp

I'd get away with it for less than $15K.
Price is due to the mileage being the 155k miles.
