It's all about condition and a look in the right places will soon reveal if the car has been looked after or not. IF the car has 180k on the clock only buy it if it's in immaculate condition ie clean interior, no rust, no ex-blown headgasket engine.
But by the same token if you get a car with low km's you don't have to be too fussy about condition as it can be brought back to mint condition with abit of TLC.
My EF has done over 200k while i've had no problems i often wish the thought of having a lower km's car. Your 110k millege is sweet, if you want to play it safe keep your car and do it up like what saleen said, unless your car isn't running too good.
