Sounds like a good price to me. I recently paid a little more than that for the same model/year with 144k miles. Front end does have the shimmy Rob mentioned; haven't tried to look into the cause(s) yet. These cars are known to have leaky tailight gaskets (mine did); check trunk for water damage. When I got the car it had very poor acceleration and wouldn't kick down to lower gears (auto); problem disappeared with adjusting throttle cable tension and kick-down adjustment (stretched cable perhaps?). Check condition of CV boots on rear axle; I have to replace one boot with a tear in it which has sprayed out its lubricant (hope the joint is OK). Am still chasing down an intermittent hard start/poor idling problem. Otherwise, it's a pretty solid car.
