High mileage 03 LR Zetec manual - should I be wary?

Hi I'm thinking of buying my first Focus, an 03 LR Zetec manual five-door hatch with around 160,000km. It's a regularly serviced rural car with easy highway mileage. Should I be wary or can a Zetec take this all in its stride? Any advice would be appreciated thank you.

there are a couple hombres with double that on a zetec bro. jsut make sure the whole thing is in spec and your good to go. as long as maintnence is done regularly on them they should outlast the frame,lol...
btw i got 74,000 on my 03 zetec, and no issues that i couldnt solve myself yet.....
