    I'm looking to get a used 2005 sports car, it has 57,000 miles on it. What are the chances that something will go wrong in it?

    what is it
    say japanese or german it hardly been touched but most other countries cars aren't so great such as french, english and italian you have to been very careful after the first decade or two but english and italian cars whst more longative than french cars are very costly to fix (a new hatchback is less than some major parts)

    It also depends on what you mean by "sports car" and who owned it last. If it was just used as a commuting car by a normal person then 57,000 isn't too many miles. I bought my first car 7 years ago with 67,000 on the clock, and it is still going strong and on around 130,000 miles.

    It depends on what exactly do you quantify as a sports car.

    Many are actually standard every day cars that have been restyled. Some are thoroughbred sport cars.

    57k on a Mazda MX5 probably be nothing but 57k on a Ferrari and you are in for some expensive bills very soon.
