Sounds fine - 102000 miles isn't actually all that high on a 2001 and sometimes with modern cars high mileage can be a good thing - why well - quite often a lot of the common faults on a particular model will have been sorted on the high mileage car - faults youd have to be getting fixed yourself during your ownership of the low mileage car. Like for example modern turbodiesels - would you rather a 106 000 mile car that had a new turbo and flywheel fitted at 99 000 or (and lets suppose the flywheel and turbo were common problem areas on the car in question) one with 81 000 miles that had yet to have the turbo or flywheel done. As well as that high mileage cars are often cheaper and you can get a newer car for the same money.

Maybe you should still tell us what make it is - it should be clear from the replys then who is knocking a make because its unfashionable or who is knocking it because it actually is a pile of doggie poo.

Good luck with it anyway

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
