I'm looking at a 2006 commander limited, hemi, 116k miles, one owner, all recalls completed, clear Carfax, etc. Asking price is 8k any thoughts. Am I crazy for buying one with this high miles? Will it be a money pit? What would be your advice and fair offer? Thanks so much.
I answered this in the "Looking to Buy" thread too;
One owner, all recalls completed and a clean Carfax is a good start, in addition check the following;
Take a good long look underneath it for rust and any signs of damage or impact.
116,000 miles is about average mileage for a 2006 vehicle, so, I wouldn't be concerned about the mileage.
2 other things I would definitely do BEFORE you pull the trigger;
Go to the website URL below and plug in the VIN of the XK you are looking at to see if all the factory re-calls and customer service campaigns have been completed:
Safety Recall Information | MOPAR
Go the website URL below to get your XK's factory build sheet; You can also order an owner's manuals from this same website if your vehicle didn't come with a factory owner's manual.

If everything is to your satisfaction at this point, take it for a test drive.
If it drives well and you don't notice anything out of the ordinary, I'd take a shot.
