The price is right. I'd like to know how the "head gasket is in good condition" though...
Did he take it apart and look? Is he assuming "good condition" cause it isn't leaking...right now...???
He doesn't mention the timing belt being done...he may not know. You could just ask what he does know. It is surprising how many people out there that have never heard of a timing belt...nor about the need to ever change one.
You could buy the car and send it to a shop, it isn't hard to "check the timing belt". You can generally tell a "recent belt" vs the one that has been on there for 169k since 1999.
There is no "gimme" in the used car world. Why is he selling it?
Problem with it? Maybe.
He doesn't like the mileage? Maybe.
Wants a newer car? Maybe.
