Hi not that sure what problems your car has had or having at this minute or what you have had to spend on it in the past but if there is any advice i could give you it would be if you are looking to buy something second hand but near new i would try and stick with a well known dealer or a highly recommended independent garage and make sure the car you are looking at has low mileage with full service history but if it has or is near to 72K mileage its going to be due a timing belt change so get the garage to change it or at least get them to take a little of the price so you are not out of pocket when it comes to having it done if you don't ask you don't get,and if it was me i would be looking for at least a 1 year warranty if it has just finished its 3 or 4 years manufactures warranty i hope this helps all the best Donald.
Currently in Donald's garage:
2005 Mercedes Benz C200 Classic SE Kompresser & 1998 Fiat Cinquecento Fire Sporting,some may say i could do far better?,i say i could do far worse.
