New from KY

I am hopefully buying an 03 ZX5 this week. It is dark blue and is very sharp, it has 113,000 miles on it and is automatic 2.0. Are there any things that are common problems in these cars and if so what should I look for and check out?

Thanks,
Daniel

I think this year is good.
Timing belt should be changed, but doesn't hurts to check
because i think the service time is 120k.
CV joint and suspension need to be checked.
see if the tranny oil is good or not (burn or not)
tires.

Update:

The car was a total turd, it just looked really good lol. I have found both a red and a green hatchback about an hour away from me. I will be going this weekend to test drive both of those cars and if I buy one I will have some pictures up next week next to my minitruck.
