AU era XR6 - How many km's is too many?

Howdy strangers, I haven't been around here for so long. I sold my XR8 ute a few years ago with the intention of buying a sedan.... It never happened. I ended up keeping my Toyota 4Runner 4WD and turning it into this (complete with Lexus Quad Cam V8)

Anyways, so the Mrs wants to move away from her Laser to something bigger. Been looking at the EL-AU models, probably just the 6 (XR.) I've come accross an 2001 AUIII XR6 VCT, it's black, optioned and has the good old 17's (not the yurk 16's.) It's an auto because she's a she and doesn't like to

So yeah, it's fairly cheap, the catch is it has 160,000km on it which is a fair bit for an '01 car. I'm just wondering if you guys have any suggestions as to what starts to go wrong around this age (distance?) and if there are any inherent problems I should look for? Or any advice really, i'll have a search around in the meantime in here.


*Edit: Oh, it claims 1 owner and a full service history through Ford.
