Medela Quick Steam Bags Question

Hi, moms. So I just bought the Medela quick steam clean bags. You are supposed to be able to clean bottles, pacifiers, some pump parts, etc. in the microwave with these bags.

Used Medela Pump in Style

Would you buy a Medela Pump In Style that was very gently used (only used a few times a month), that is 8 years old?

I will replace all the personal parts, but I'm just a little leary about buying a pump that's 8 years old... but from what I understand, the Medelas hold up wonderfully. What do you think?
