Possible New Owner

Hey guys/girls, if all goes to plan, I'll be taking home a Sportcross this weekend. I've been looking for the right one for months, and I think I finally found it.

My question is, are there any known issues that I should pay particular attention to? I'm decently mechanically inclined, so I'm not afraid of technical speak. I'd much rather make an informed purchase then regret it down the line. Any input is appreciated.

This link is helpful, some things that I would add. Has Timing belt been done this is $600-$900 service. Bring code reader check for pending codes, if the car has bad cats or sensors, that can also be a large cost.
