Buying an police interceptor charger?

Found one for good price for my fiancé. Has I think 107k miles. No police stuff now they took all out. Should I worry about the cops who rode it hard or do they treat them and maintain them good?

I would think they maintained it very well. They should have record of it. It would be either owned by the city or county. They then would contract out the maintenance. That's just the way in thinkin it would work. Let us see it.

Yeah, I would be more than skittish about it. I thought u might be buying it from a police auction or something. For that money and miles, I would hold off, that's just me tho.

I have a friend who is a local cop, and he says they beat the living piss out of their cars. They are regularly maintained but driven hard.

Bro, Take it from me who is a county police officer. Dude, you don't want to buy a former police car. Us cops beat the living snot out of those cars. They are ran hard hard, hard. Sure, departments like mine typically change the oil every 5k miles however they are a hard 5 k. I would never ever ever buy a used police car. The transmissions are driven hard, braking system hard , engine hard. Its like running your car on a track, 365 days a year.
