Cool Should I get this Pontiac Sunfire for my first car?

I don't even have my drivers licence yet but this looks like a great car for the price from a local seller (and I can afford it. Is the mileage too high?

What do you think?

You get what you pay for 190,000 miles is A LOT! I would atleast go in person to check the car out look under the hood, and I don't know what they mean by low miles on engine and transmission?!?!

Thats what I was thinking, but I would have thought they would say something like new engine and transmission, instead of low miles on engine and transmission

looks good , we dont have them in the uk or at least i have never seen one . The mileage is high but for a first car all you want is a cheap little run around

oh and mileage dosent realy matter if the car has been looked after , serviced regularly and kept well oiled
