At 10k, it doesn't sound like a bad deal. If fuel economy is a main concern. The 2010 MKZ mpg is not great but it is much better than the current cars you have. The 2010 you are looking has the V6 engine, instead of the 4 cylinder available in the current models.

That's A LOT of miles, just make sure it runs properly and all the maintenance has been done. But being a one owner car I wouldn't worry too much as first owners actually care about their cars more than 2nd, 3rd, and on.

But be ready to fork out a bunch of cash to do major jobs, usually at that mile range you need to do bigger and most costly maintenance.

I would also ask what the car was primarily driven for. Was it a lot of city driving of highway. Highway driving is far more desirable since it puts less strain on the engine.
This is a good point. Definitely something to bring up to the seller when the time comes.

Also you'll want to take it to a mechanic of your own to make sure the vehicle is mechanically sound and it's not going to start costing you thousands to repair, that's the last thing you want buying used.

If your looking at the value yes it's sounds like a good catch for a previously owned MKZ. Somethings you should consider is if the warranty is still valid and for how much longer. That is a fair bit of mileage. Just have to figure out if your willing to go at it without a warranty, so that means more money out of your pocket when time comes for service and maintenance.

Considering you have to chauffeur your grandkids to extra curricular activities that only means they have sports equipment. So is the space enough in the MKZ?
