If you go for it, insist on a good warranty!
Find out who did the work, and phone them. Ask them what they did and why. In particular, ask how they set the timing (the answer you're looking for is "with cam locks and a TDC gauge") and check what was replaced at the same time (idler, tensioner, variator, water pump are all 'good things' to hear)...
If it suffered a snapped cambelt, ask if the big-end bearings were changed - they can fail shortly after the rebuild if not attended to.
