The 1.8 and 2.0 are a good engine with no cambelt to worry about. Just check the tyres for wear and that the wear is even. If its out, it could just need tracking but the suspension could be suspect.
Make sure the aircon is working as it can cost a bit to sort out.
Check for leaks (oil and water). The usual stuff really.
Brakes disks and pads are cheap so not too much to worry there.
Sounds like it could be a good buy with such low mileage.
