buying a used 2008 Acura TL Type-S

Hi All,

I recently saw a 2008 Acura TL TypeS(3.5L V6) with 110000 miles. Bronze color. 2 owners(within same family). The carfax looks good. Timing belt has been changed in the mid 2018 at 95000 miles at an Acura dealership. Tires and brakes have 1.5 years life left. Few cosmetic blemishes here and there. No leaks. No engine ticking sound. Transmission seems okay. Battery replaced an year back. The owner asks $8K. Is the price ok? What would be the optimum price? I am anyways planning to take it to a nearby Acura dealership for a Prepurchase inspection.

Is there anything specific I need to ask about / check in the car?

My primary concern with a car this age is as follows:

Transmission service history

Suspension condition (struts, ball joints, tie rods...)

Brakes - cooroded/stuck calipers

$8000 is not a bad price for this car, not a deal either. For its age, the mileage is low. The color is a price depressor tho.

As to the $1500 TL, pass. It will be a piece of junk at that price.
