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? The owner reports it to be in excellent working condition, with some parts still in sealed bags... She wants only $65. My main concern is that it's 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?

Medela Pump Tubing
