Looking at buying this unit listed at this site

http://edmonton.kijiji.ca/c-cars-vehicl ... Z208044996

Concerned about what I should investigate and seems no local experience for repairs in Alberta, Canada

this owner only has put 180 miles on it and with 100,000 kilometers (60,000 miles)wondering what I should check out or expect for repairs/reconditioning.

thanks for your guidance.

Doug,

Looks pretty good in the pictures. Look at the rear springs at the back supports for any rust as the springs will go through the floor boards if they are weak there. Check to make sure all the glass is good and all open and close as they are suppose to. Find out when the timing belt was last changed/adjusted. These are interference engines, which means if the belt breaks the valves will hit the pistons.
If you are tall, 5'10" or more you may find the head room reduced. Looks like all the seats have been recovered, good.
Take it for a drive, remember it is only a four cylinder and will not be a leader in traffic. When the key is turned on there should be several dash warning lights and all should go out after the engine is running for a few seconds.
If you are mechanically inclined you should be able to determine any questionable items.

Hope this helps,
Rick
