    It's a 1993 SR5 V6. 288k miles on the chassis, 15k on a rebuilt engine. New timing belt, radiator, etc. Interior is exceptionally clean for its age. Exterior is in good condition as well. No rust issues. Is $2500 a decent deal? I'm in the Pacific Northwest. I'm aware of the headgasket issues and would be getting a PPI done. Anything else that should be worrisome?

    I'd say that you should gauge it on what you find at the PPI. That's 288,000 miles on every other component of the vehicle. Run a Carfax report on it and see what you find as far as repairs go... you may discover a rebuilt transmission in the recent past, which ought to give you some comfort about not having to get a new transmission anytime soon. If you can't discover evidence of a rebuilt or new transmission, figure that that transmission has almost 300,000 miles on it and could go out on you anytime.

    Who knows. I'd probably stay away from something with that many miles on it, but then again, it all depends upon what you want to do with it. If you're looking for a beater to use for off-roading, and you don't mind turning a wrench from time to time, you might not be able to do better than this one.
