You will need to ask if the current owner has or knows if the timing chains have been done. Usually they have well before 150,000 kms some wouldn’t make 80,000 but it’s not impossible. Make sure you take it for a good drive and check to make sure that there is no oil coming from around the timing cover as well as around the rocker covers. Does it come with a service history?

If it isn't throwing an actual code indicating a stretched timing chain(s), I wouldn't even worry about it.
