i have a v6 cam around those same miles, there about the same only diffrent shell.

take it out driving and lissen when you go over bumps and turns for knocking or clunking noises. also lissen to the engine for any uncommon noises, the condtion of the belts and if everything works including cd player if one is installed. i'm personaly surpised about the rack and pinion and also take it out on the highway a let go of the wheel for a short while to make sure the alignment is right. also check the headlights at night too see if they are aligned right this can show if the car was in an accident (my gf weren't lined up).
