samurai high idles untill it reaches operating temperature. On a hot day it shouldn't take as long, but it still will high idle when you first start it untill it gets up to temp. The mileage is probably 124K, the odometer turns back to zero at 100K. If you aren't familiar with the samurai take it to a mechanic for a quick diagnostic before you buy it. That way you know what kind of expenses and work you're looking at to maintain it or repair it.
