Default Lancer 1.5 2008 purchase

Hi all,

I would like to purchase a Mitsubishi Lancer 1.5 petrol 2008 and I would need an opinion whether it is "safe" to buy it with so high mileage.

It has 210k kilometers, but only one owner and full service history.

Do you think 210k kilometers is too much for this car? Should I expect any major problems with this high mileage? From what I have read about this car, it should be very reliable and cheap to maintain.

Thank you for your help!

i would consider that high for a small engine.
Being said, if its been maintained/serviced, the only thing likely in the next 100k km will be piston rings and a head job. Which is maintenance anyway if you keep a vehicle long enough.
Get it checked front to back by a decent mechanic, it should take 2-4 hours and will find any problems
