200,000km Checkup?

MY bro just bought a 2006 cobalt SS S/C with 200,000km on it (got a helluva deal), everything that I can see appears to be in tip top shape, its passed safety and etest... stock everything (Except intake/lowered springs)

clutch bites well, no slip at all, but what are some things you guys would do/change out at this many KM? The serpentine belt looks good, and the interior looks like it's never even been sat in lol. The brakes were all recently done.

I just hit 200k. Tensioners? Should I be worried. Is there a thread about this?

Nice to see he got the cobalt. Was it the one with the cracked windshield? Also how did you convert him from that crappy mustang to the ss/sc?

It was a late 90's GT and it would be awful on gas and doesn't have much power. Only positive I'd say is it would have RWD but at the same time he lives in Canada so that is a negative too.
