Question Buy 06 RL with Hi Miles and no service History?

Have a chance to buy this 187,000 mi 06 RL-SH
dealer SAYS one owner but no service records I would
THINK the timing belt was changed at least ONCE can I find out with the VIN?
Or should I look for lower mi example? This one's pretty clean
he's asking $3500 Can I hear from you RL folks on it?
Thanks,
Tom

Whaaa How old are you? You're asking for free comments...

I'll chime in. go to carcomplaints.com, look up this model and year - look at the curves, I won't do it for you. Buying a used car is a statistical operation. You balance out your risks for a much reduced price. Ask if you can take it to a mech to check it over. If the dealer balks, walk.

Pictures look good, even so

I'd be very concerned about the transmission. I'd pass.
