You shouldn't have a problem, I bought my 2010 lancer es sport with M/T with about 89k miles and i now have 110k miles and have only done basic mantinence. Oil changes, tire rotations, a coolant flush. Use full synthetic oil, it will held keep the problem down.

I have an 08 manual I bought in 2009. It has about 127k miles now. As the above poster stated just keep up with regular maintenance. It might need a change of several fluids depending on what the owner has done. Check how the tranny shifts, and check the suspension bits for wear (especially ball joints - cheap to replace if you can do it yourself).
