Too much. Polaris was selling them new for that much when they quit to get rid of inventory. I wouldn't pay more than $3200 for a used MSX140 .

My old 140 is on its third motor.
I hear the 04's were better though.

The 03's were certainly troublesome but in 04 they had the bugs ironed out. You will go through Throttle Position Sensors but aside from that the 04's are hard to kill.
The hull was lightened 30+ pounds, all in the nose. The sub-contractor building the hulls made a boo boo in the first run 03's.
The 04's were quicker and a couple miles an hour faster than the 04's.
The strakes and rear of the hull were modified for a better ride and pretty much cured the listing problem of the MSX platform.
The injectors/computer were recalibrated.
There were quite a few other changes but I think you get the drift, the 04 was a better package.................well unless you converted it to a Matrix and prefered the weight up front.
Speed is in the very low 60's.
If you can get that boat for 3K, I'd be all over it!!!

If you can get the price low enough and you're looking for a stable, gas-miser of a cruiser then it's a great buy. It'll ride 2 up very comfortably and post-03 they're mechanically sound (my 03 just bit the dust too...)
Now compared to what you're used to it's slow as dirt (60ish...) but damn if it won't run near 125 miles on a tank just cruising...sipping 87 octane the whole time...
