Two years ago I paid $3500 for mine with 165k miles. This after searching the local classifieds and finding nothing under $4000. The paint and interior are in great condition and I have since replaced/repaired the following: Radio, plugs and wires, PS pump, lower control arms, air filter, serpentine belt, brake pads and tires. The car is awesome and runs and drives like a dream. All total I have spent approx $4100 doing all the labor myself and shopping the internet. Incidentally, this is the longest that I have ever owned a car, usually getting tired of them within a year.
4 years ago I got my first 93 for $800 off my mechanic was at 132k. with timing belt done and all the paperwork since 93 of every oil change and work done from lexus dealership. He wanted $9000 for it but he ended up blowing the motor in my car so he gave me the lexus for $800

None. I'm still piecing together everything so I can do it all at once. I have all the basic belt job stuff, but I'm going to go ahead and replace everything tune up wise including:
- Drive Belts
- PCV and grommet
- VC gaskets
- Cam Seals
- Fuel Filter
- Cap, Rotor, and Plugs
- Plug Wires
- Crank Seal
It may seem over board but the car is 14 years old, and since I'm tearing into it mechanically I might as well replace it all and be done with it.
