I am sure the water pump and radiator have been replaced. None last that long.

The car will likely need some maintenance, but how much will be an unknown until you go over it carefully. Things like bushings, shock, rear shock mounts, lower control arms all could be fine, or could need work. Plus the cooling system might be up for parts again.

Give them a low enough offer to cover some of the potential pitfalls, or find another one.
