9K is about average with that mileage, KellyBlueBook has it at $9625. I got my 98 at 57,000 for 12k. Anything before '97 had issues with the waterpump (plastic impellers) and the first thing you should do is replace that and thermostat. Other than that you need to troll the forums for 'perceived problems' on this model coupled with the maintenance history of your car. I say perceived because some of us consider some issues as normal wear and tear compared to others that complain that bushings should last forever. You gotta be realistic, things wear out. As a starting point, make sure that the service 1 and 2 items have been addressed. You should be good from there.
