High mileage 2013 volt

So a friend of mine was borrowing my 2013 volt and crashed it. I'm now in the market for a new volt and found a 2013 that has 135k miles but is going for 8.5k. Any thoughts yet on the reliability of high mileage volts? My other choice is to return to a Prius, but that just doesn't seem as exciting anymore.

My friend was actually doing me a favor and waiting to drive me home from an ultra marathon trail race. She's typically a great driver...but happened to wreck the car while going out to buy food for after the race.

I had the dealer come down to 8.4k out the door for the car. I'm still on the fence about it. I have the finances to pay cash for any repairs for the car; I just hate spending money so the thought of potential costly repairs bothers me. I did notice like another poster mentioned that the price drops significantly after the volt hits 100k. I don't plan on selling the car anytime soon so it would be a benefit to let someone else take the depreciation hit.
I ended up going ahead and buying it! It's in good condition and has been regularly serviced. Overall mpg was 77 so a significant number of the miles were electric. Here's to hoping this one lasts longer than it's predecessor!
