Default seeking advice on 2004 TL

Hi all, I am new to this form and I am seeking advice. I am looking at buying a 2004 TL with 95,000 miles. What are the major things I need to look at/ask about on this model of car? How long is the recommended interval for timing belt replacement? What should I expect to spend for its replacement? The biggest problem is that it is about 300 miles away and I am going to have to depend on the dealer for information. Any information that you can provide would be greatly appreciate. Thanks

Default My wife drives a 2004 TL

And we have had zero problems with it. Of course she doesn't drive it that much, since it only has 37K on it.

Historically the weakest point of these cars is the transmission.

Best bet is to pay for a nearby dealer to perform a pre-purchase inspection and see what comes back in their results.
