    just check that the cambelt etc has been done, check the service history, and an overal insection of the car.

    What engine are you after??

    As Gaz said just check the history, even a higher miler will go on for quite a while, for some motors 100,000 miles isn't high lol. Got picked up in a taxi a while ago tha had 187,000 miles and was still running sweet.

    Guy near here taxis in one of those old imported diesel Toyota Carinas. It's got just shy of 950k on the clock - he's having a few problems with it passing the emissions tests now, but otherwise it still runs 100%. Original engine, orginal gearbox, think it's only had 2 clutches. The mechanic a few doors down services it.
