Should I worry about an engine replacement?

I'm looking at a automobile advertised as having 18,000 miles on the clock, but at foot of ad it explains that engine was replaced after 148,000 miles and that new engine has only 18,000 miles on it. So the automobile itself has 166,000 on clock. I am wondering if the fact the engine needed to be replaced is in itself a red flag, and whether or not 166,000 is a huge mileage for a five-year-old automobile?

Does Hyundai's warranty transfer to Ireland?


I found your article on importing a automobile from UK very helpful, thanks. My question is, are there any issues regarding the manufacturer's warranty on imported automobiles? I'm considering purchasing a Hyundai in Northern Ireland and there is over three years left on the warranty; does this transfer without an issue when I bring automobile to the Republic?
