I just picked up a 2002 MDX with 225000 miles at a really low price. I just got back from getting some high mileage service done and getting it checked out. They said nothing was urgent, but there was a small like from the radiator. Even though they said it could wait I scheduled the service for tomorrow. I fully expected to spend a couple thousand dollars on major repairs this year and I wasn't going to take any chances with my transmission. There are a few more things on my list, many which I will perform myself. Suspension, wheel refurbish, pop the bumper dent, fix the door trim that is falling off etc... Other than that the body is clean, not completely scratched up, the interior is in great shape except for the worn steering wheel that I wrapped in leather. After tomorrow's service I'll be invested for about $4200 with no identified problems according to my trusted mechanic. I have to say I think I got pretty damn lucky. I really needed the 3rd row seating as we have 2 toddlers and once we try to fit their cousins or other family we were out of room in our Nissan Rogue (now my wife's car).
