Hello,

So I am looking at getting a first car, preferably a wagon, and found a 2001 VX Commodore, with 260,000Ks a little of sun damage on the paint, but other wise seems alright.
After a bit of negotiation they said they’ll let it go for $1000 with 3 months rego, is this an alright buy?
Of course would have to inspect in person just tryna find the jist of it.

Cheers!
Hugh

Sounds reasonable. Can't expect too much for 1000 bucks

Yeah Nah Maybe...

Google all the common faults of that model/mileage then see if car has all those issues,cost to fix then decide if still worth it for you.

Test drive also to see if you like the way that model drives.
