2004 1.9 DID Carisma. Elegance Pointers Please

I'm looking at buying a 2004 1.9 DID Elegance with 160k on the clock.

What are the engines like with this kind of mileage and am I right in saying It's a Renault engine??
Is there anything I should be looking out for??
I've taken her for a spin but apart from pulling hard left under braking...all seems good to me.

Any help/advice would be muchly appreciated!!!!

Pulling hard left under brakeing ... hmmm

What does the owner say to that ?

Neglected maintenance due to lack of money ?

Maybe a reason to look for a different car ....

I'd not buy that without a mechanic looking at it, that could be more than a simple issue, and as xrx is hinting towards if that has been neglected what else has been skipped. Was the timing belt ever serviced or is it going to break after having the vehicle a couple months.
