high milage

I have found a 93 xj for sale locally that I am interested in.

http://augusta.craigslist.org/cto/3748707207.html

After contacting the owner he said it has 260,xxx miles but that it runs well. I don't have a problem with a rebuild down the road a ways but need something to drive everyday for the short term. Should I be scared of this mileage?

I would have to agree if it runs pretty well and has no shifting problems It sounds like a pretty good deal. Check the air box and air hose for signs if oil which would indicate a possible engine blow by issue. But for that price if you are in need of cheap transportation buy it and do some basic fluid changes, as well as a good coolant system flush if it appears to need it.
