at that mileage you need to make sure that the cam belt etc has been replaced,as they need doing at 125k or 10 years.also make sure you have some sort of history with it,apart from that its a mind field like with buying any 2nd hand car.
if you know the reg then look on the ford etis site to see what info is on the car,and it may also say whether it has missed any recalls?
