99 AU xl ute, any probs to look for?

Hi guy's

it's time to get rid of my XF ute, and get something a little newer.
My budget is about $15,000, and I have seen this 1999 AU ute which has done 185,000km's.

Is there anything I should be wary about or problems to look out for in an AU with this many k's?

Looks like a nice car, and will take for a test run in the next day or 2.

Cheers,

Scott.
