Cruisers are no different to other vehicles if driven hard , still wear out . The difference is if given a gentle life 300,000--400,000km is not outa the question .

A FULL check over is needed
tyre wear front end check and rear suspension check
leaking hubs
wheel bearings serviced
brake condition
brake fluid flush
shockers mounts /leaking
tailshaft condition
eng g.box mount
drive line leaks
cooling system service and pressure test
power steer check

clutch perf
gearchange perf
pulling when driving and or under brakes
brake pedal feel
steering wheel vibration

As with any car Air con evaporator needs a clean to insure good performance

This is just a few areas to check over

180k isn’t much and would be fine depending on how the vehicle has been looked after.

Driven poorly cruisers canbe destroyed in about 2-4 years . 100% offroad dirt road application .
Get the vehicle checked over at your RACV RAA RACQ etc if your serious .

Never take peoples word ,the repairs if you get caught out will cost a lot potentially .
