I agree with Roy. Take it to an independent mechanic and have them take a look at it. They'll charge you a bit, but it's worth it. As for the age and mileage, the year makes no difference, really, and 129,000 is just getting broken in for most cars these days. I have a 2000 GMC Jimmy with 215,000 that I drive five hours/day and a 2002 Chevrolet Blazer with 211,000 that I drove for five hours/day for 3 years with few mechanical issues. I'm also about to buy a 2001 Chevy Blazer with about 220,000 on it that runs well. All three trucks run well, and the first two have been thoroughly abused as rural mail route vehicles, while the third one is about to be abused on the route.
