Hello and welcome to the forum.
I'd definately agree with Steve,it's not so much the mileage you should be worrying about,it's the history of the car and how regularly it's been serviced that should concern you.100,000 motorway miles will wear an engine less than 10k pottering to the shops and back once a week,as long as the service history is up together I wouldn't be concerned about a car with higher miles on it.
As for buying a second hand car that 'won't give you much trouble',that is pretty much pot luck,although at least your doing the right thing and researching things before buying.
