Exhaust manifold leak .... Worth buying

We test drove a 1998 sport tonight. It has 135k miles on it and it drove better than any other jeep we have driven....but the owner said it had an exhaust manifold leak and that is what caused a sound. (To me it sounded like a hole in the floor)

My husband recognized it as an exhaust leak, but couldn't trace it to the manifold.

We really like this jeep, and it fits all our criteria.......but
I don't like the sound the leak makes and i wonder how much it would cost to fix it ......and the main question ...... Could this be a sign of a bigger problem ?!?!

any and All opinions appreciated.... I don't want to make a big mistake,

If the rest of the Jeep checks out mechanically and structurally I would not worry about it. How much to fix will depend entirely on what is broken. Full exhaust can be pricey but if its cat back you could always do a cheap cat back exhaust to save some cash. Walker makes one that is about 179.00 if I remember right...
