Default Interested in this high mileage 2009 GT

Okay so this mustang popped up for sale in my area, it has 185k miles single owner for 7k the car looks like itís been really well taken care of inside and out. It has a nice service history and record but does it have too many miles for it to be a decent deal this would be my first mustang so Iím kind of in the dark and wanted some oppinions the photos below are the car.

I'd go by the condition, and the standard of maintenance, rather than the mileage.
That particular car has averaged 20k miles/year so most of them are likely to have been low stress highway cruising.

$6,895 - $9,100 is the current market value for it, if it is a Deluxe, high price having ETC, ABS, Traction Control...
$5,918 - $7,949 Premium, depending on options for the higher price.

$6000 cash and drive...

With the glass roof, my guess is it is a pretty high option car that appears well taken care of. Service records available shows the owner took care of it.

And based upon the interior and the glass roof, likely a premium and not a base model.

The last couple times I was looking for a vehicle, I more or less ignored mileage and and looked at the condition the car was in. There were cars that I walked up to, and just said no before the door was even opened. There were cars with 70k miles that were absolutely trashed, but sometimes you'll come across a car like the one you pictured that is in excellent condition.
That mileage would scare me a little bit, so I would take it into an empty parking lot and push it a bit to see it anything feels off, and have a PPI (Pre-purchase inspection) done. $7000 seems a little steep for a car with that mileage, but a lot of factors go into that, so it's hard to tell. If it seems like a good car, then it's a good price.

Don't even know how a glass roof is legal in the U.S. when Toyota isn't allowed
to have their new Hybrids here with the glass solar panel roof. They're in Japan, but
not here, they say it's unsafe.. Yet for $2000 Ford offered glass roofs in 2009 on the
V6 and GT. It should also have a roller blind. That's pretty cool... I think they offered
it in 2010 too. Wonder if you can buy the panel, hardware, roller blind, and modify
'05-'08s...

Okay, so $7000 it is.... He could get the $9000 though, premium GT with that glass roof.
I'd scoop that up if I had 7K lying around... Always worth putting a motor in if the rest
of the car is spotless.
