Nice! Welcome to the forums! What you might need to know is how many miles are on the car and make sure that it was and is maintained. If it is passed anywhere 90k, make sure that the timing belt and waterpump has been replaced. If it had around 60k, make sure to do the same as above cause the year of the car even though it has low miles still means that you have to change the timing belt and the waterpump. Just make sure that that is the main thing and then you can look out for wear and tears brakes, hoses, oil changes, fluids, etc, etc....
I think that those are the main things but, sure that others here can chime in if I missed something. Good luck on your search...and be sure that you will def. see this car go over 300k easily.:)
