I'm considering buying a 1999 gmc 1500 and it has 240,000 miles on it all highway.....the guy has to travel from Indiana to Virginia and Florida and places like that but he maintains it very well the truck has never missed an oil change and he flushes the transmission and puts a new filter on it every 35000 miles......he just got a new torque converter put on and had the tranny went through to make sure nothing was goin wrong And nothing was.....the body is impecable and has no dents or rust fresh paint.....it's $5300 and seems like a great buy but should I be worried about the miles?

    Yeah 240 is very high things like timing belt water pump fuel pump ect have a life spam of about 150k so you may have to spend a lot of money down the line repairing stuff.
