Default want to buy scion tc?

i'm currently shopping for a scion tc right now and i do not have a huge budget and i found two that fit my budget and both of the cars are 2007, one has 70,000 miles and the other has 65,000 miles on it. is that good for a scion tc? i feel like that's the lowest amount of miles i have seen so far in my price range besides cars that have a salvage title. thanks!

Better idea:

Buy a older used bmw/nissan etc.. Find a car/style you like with a blown engine.

Put remaining money into brand new engine/transmission/suspension etc.

Bam! Same cost, but you have a car with not only 0km, but far more power and control.

A car that costs 20k say, will be destroyed by a car that cost 2k and had 18k put into it.


Its not an old car after its been restored. Your just one of the sheep whos has their perception distorted. I have a question for you..... Go watch professional racing. Rally, drift etc.... These are top quality performance cars. 9/10 are from the 80/90s... Why? because they put the money into fixing them. One you fix/replace a part, its not old anymore but new. 20k can easily buy/fix up an older car and have it at high performance level. Super reliable and able to outdo a new 20k car in every area. When you buy a new/newer car, most of what your paying is wasted. Most of what u payed is just so u can say u have a new/newer car. Cars are one of the fastest objects to lose value. So many cars sell for 30k, then some years later you can buy it for 10k with crazy low km under 100 xxx. What happend to that other 20k? wasted....

New or brand new is always best, don't waste money on old cars.

I have a 2006 scion with more miles than that on it and I drive it everyday. I have not ever had any problems with my scion. Cheap on gas and has not ever let me down. I would not trade my car and I don't think you could go wrong buying one.
