I assume you plan to keep the car for five or six years at least, right? Areas of concern for me would include all the fluids, especially brake, engine coolant, and transmission fluid.I would take a good look at the belts and hoses.I would want to know how old the tires were. Given the age and miles, it would not surprise me to find out the tires were five+ years old, unless of course they're brand new.I have no scientific or technical reason for my thinking, but I can't get past my father's teaching that fluids are cheap and engines are expensive. Can the fluids be inspected? Some transmissions I guess are sealed and you can't even look at the fluid without opening the case.Absent any evidence they have been replaced, I'd want new coolant, brake fluid and transmission fluid.
