Vectra 2008 1.6 Petrol 190,000km Timing Belt hasn't been done!

Hi,
I was thinking of buying the above car until I discovered the timing belt has not been done ever.
Are there any symptoms I could look out for as in possible engine damage already inflicted on it? If I buy it, i would obviously do the timing belt etc etc but is there anything else I should check beyond the usual "it runs good".
Thanks

The belt is due every ten years or 160,000 km (whichever comes first), so it is not very seriously overdue.
If it still runs normally then no damage has been done by ignoring the cam belt. If the cam belt had jumped teeth the engine would run terribly or not at all.

But it's due for replacement just on an age basis 2008->2018, surely ?

It is overdue on both mileage (kilometerage doesn't sound right) and on age, but neither are enormously over the suggested limits. Yes, he should get it done IF he buys it.
