    i assume, its below the recommended reading pa for changing the timing belt.
    but to be sure better have it checked.
    replace all fluids, check the drive belts and replace if necessary.
    check the brake pads.
    check tire condition.

    Since 2010 lang yan, baka generally ok pa. But to have a peace of mind, here are the things that I would do:

    - replace all fluids
    - check brake pads and lines
    - check all belts and hoses
    - check lights / bulbs
    - check spare tire (this is the most neglegted item in vehicles)
    - check wheel alignment
