That mileage isn't that bad...... It is high by not too extreme. If the car still runs and looks good then it was probably fairly well taken care of.

For the engine it would be a good idea to have a mechanic look at it and check the valve clearance, compression and a few other things........ the mechanic will know what to look for.

For the body/suspension he can look it over and check ball joints, tie rod ends, bushings etc. If the tires are wearing even the alignment must be close which would tell you there are no excessively worn parts. NOTE*** Just because of the mileage unless you can confirm the RTAB's were done, have these done regardless.

Enjoy the car, it may run for hundreds of thousands more miles without anything but routine maintenance. Please realize a well maintained high mileage car can be a lot better than a lower mileage poorly maintained car.
