records... records... records...

inspection... inspection... inspection...

was the car in Sandy's path? was it in accident? was oil changed?

with this mileage you should be looking into regular maitenance items - the suspension parts, the oil leaks, the belts, the hoses... was the car in northern states, subject to road salt? was it southern car? were any of those items replaced?

average US driving habits suggest 12-15 K miles a year, the car is 6 years old, should be between 75K and 90 K - 115 miles show a little bit more than "standard" mileage but nothing to be overly worried about... as a matter of fact, in these engines, high mileage means that the engine is all muscle and no fat (fat = "mayo" sludge in the CCV)
