Not familiar with this thread so please pardon the ignorance about this particular Kia model.

In a nutshell, youngest son out in Melbourne, Australia is thinking about purchasing the above from one of his colleagues who is returning to UK. The asking price is $5,250 AUD (circa £3,000). He has asked me "what I think"?

Apart from the usual tyres/brake discs/pads etc, I was wondering about cambelt issues amongst other things. Should it have had a replacement cambelt by now and if not is this an essential repair which should be undertaken now possibly by adjusting the purchase price downwards before having the work undertaken?

Is there anything else he should consider?

Would appreciate any observations please.

Great little car and it the first Kia I bought for my youngest lad before he had my ix20.. at 65k its over due in not done and should be changed at 60k.. be aware that indicator and light switches are on the opposite sides to later cars but I am sure he will get used to that..
