Re: Newbie here
Hi Tanis and a big welcome to AO.
I had a 145 a few years back and had very few problems with it.
A point to watch, for a twin spark, would be if the cam-belt has been replaced - it really needs doing every 36,000 miles or three years - also suspension bushes can wear I think mine were quite bad before I sold it. I also had the water pump fail at about 30,000 miles it can be weak area I think. Other than that reliable and fun to drive.
Look around the 145/146 part of the forum for more details.
