With a car of that age and mileage it all boils down to the service history! Check it with a fine tooth comb, and then do it again. If yo get chance to talk to the previous owner/driver, do.
The 2.2 seems to be pretty reliable from the posts on here. Check the engine management light isn't on, that could be a sign of a stretching cam chain. Other than that, see if it revs and pulls cleanly.
Does the bodywork match the mileage? Any sign of panel repairs?
If not, turn on, switch off and give it the beans!
