For those who have followed and commented on my previous post about my roommate's Land Rover finally being out of the picture and it being time for her to get a new car thanks for the advice.

There is a new development: she has the opportunity to purchase a one owner 2001 Jaguar S-Type that is in good condition (with the exception of the heater not working, but this is Texas) with 73k miles from a close family friend.

What is a good price in your opinion? Kelly Blue Books says that "good" condition with those sorts of miles should be $6500 with excellent being $7000.

Is it even a car worth purchasing? Reliability and gas mileage are important to her. So far the Jag has been pretty reliable for it's current owner.
