Looking at 2002 Explorer

We have a horse farm and one of boarders is thinking of getting rid of their explorer. it won't pass inspection for the following:

Right front wheel bearing needs replace
needs new brakes all around
transfer case seal to the transmission is leaking.

I'm pretty mechanically inclined but am a little skeptical on this one.
They are open to barter/trade board and lessons for the price of the vehicle.

It is a XLS base model, has 125000 and has a salvage title from like 6 years ago. She has been driving it with no issues for the last year, and her dad is a mechanic and bought it with the salvage title.

they are looking at a price of $1200. Should i walk away?

Re: Looking at 2002 Explorer

If you're looking for something fairly maintenance free after the repairs, walk away. Most cars start showing their age at around 100K these days, but generally can be worth running to 200 without huge repairs. If you're looking for a cheap ride that can sit for a while if you've got issues, probably worth it. People, for the most part, seemed to like the Explorers so they must have done something right with them. Just make sure you take a good look underneath, it sounds like she was neglected a little bit. What's the body like?

Body in great shape. No dings or anything. Needs a bath and a good detail. Haven't driven it yet or looked it entirely over.
