Means very little until you examine the actual Service Booklet my friend, it doesn't stipulate "Full" or "Interval" services, or who did them !... Not only that, but, who are the previous owners and why the high milage on a four-year car?
I would suggest you look into these AND request an extended test-drive to notice unfamiliar noises/knocks, and while you're in it - check that EVERYTHING works as it should !
