Yes especially if it has a 4 cylinder engine just be sure to have the timing belt done on it before it hits 150,000 miles.If you consider the fact that most ppl drive their vehicles a good 10,000-15,000 miles per yr that car has low mileage and it maybe a good thing but I'd also recommend that you check the dealership with the vehicles Vin numbers you can find out the service info and factory recall issues, plus have a reliable mechanic check it over before you ever agree to purchase it.

Hope that helps and best of luck.By the way since you mentioned kms I figure you could be in Canada and here the seller has to purchase a car info package for the buyer and both are suppose to be at the ministry when this occurs.Note many ppl just purchase the info themselves but don't worry about the seller being there etc but law is the seller is to pay for this pkg.

Note those cars tend to have load exhausts and if it's a manual be sure to be gentle and not rough with the clutch bec you'll end up burning too much fuel, making excessive street noises and fry/brake your clutch.Those cars have a excellent over all reputation and are good vehicles that can be driven for many years and still resold at a good market value.One last note I recommend any rookie driver takes a defensive driver's ed course it also helps insurance rates and after 5-10 years take a advanced drivers ed course.
