240k or over miles on a 2002 Toyota Camry, is that bad?

I know a decent amount about cars and I know that typically at this point in the miles, the car is going to need a decent amount of maintenance and it's (supposedly?)near the end of its life. Well, it would be my first vehicle at 19 so I'm trying not to be picky with my first vehicle.

The problem is that I don't make enough money to pay insurance, stuff for tags, etc AND more maintenance on the vehicle.

So should I take this chance as my first vehicle, or look elsewhere?
