The T-belt change interval is 90K miles, so it more than likely
hasn't been done. And at 13 years old, the rubber belt is ready
to break. Change it first thing if you buy it. Figure $800 for
all the parts, about the same again for labor.
FWIW, www.kbb.com lists prices for that mileage as:
Retail, excellent condition: $11,235
private party, excellent: $9,105
private party, good $8,495
private party, fair $7,690
'94 100 S Avant, "Moody"
'89 200 TQ, "Bad Puppy" up in smoke
