    Default Buying a 96 suburban with 300,000 miles

    Hi, this is my first post on here!

    I'm looking to buy another suburban. I found one that's really good condition and seems like a good deal ($1,500). The only problem is it has a lot of miles on it. Around 302,156. I've been told these are mostly highway miles.

    Here's a list of parts that have been replaced lately:

    Rebuilt 4L60 Trans. ( 2-12-10 )
    Tires replaced (03-22-10)
    Fuel pump replaced ( 8-28-10 )
    Alternator and battery ( 8-30-10)
    Needs a front end alignment, and has an exhaust leak (which needs a doughnut gasket).

    Should I buy it or is this a bad idea? Can it live a lot longer or will I have to replace the motor soon? It has the original motor in it. It also has a tv with a vcr (I'd replace the VCR though) and a 12 disc changer in the back.

    Here's a picture of it:
