You can check with the owners manual in whichmaintenance schedule and parts to be replaced at particular KM coverage is mentioned. Usually at 40 KM serivice no major parts to be replaced except oil filters, fuel filters,brake pads, suspension bush kits etc to be checked.other major repairs are to be done at 60K Km where timing belt and other belts needs to be replaced.As a general rule the own purpose used vehicle mileage are reliable and would not have been tampered as intaxi vehicles.However for clarification purpose you can get general check up done at service cente and also the instrument clusture checked for tampering.It also depends upon willingness of seller for fair deal.
