is 10 years old so the possible failures of plastic parts due to age does present itself. AOS, water pump and water filler tank come to mind. Also check the age of the tires.

If something major happens, it is not cheap to maintain.

Having said that, I have a '01S with 70km and it has been cheap to maintain for the last 5 years/30 km ... cheaper than 2 Honda products of similar age.
