Have it checked out by a local shop for things like worn ball joints, idler arms and things like that as well as the standard compression checks. At 148,000 miles any car is going to show signs of wear. If you need the car as reliable as you indicate - invest a little up front and check it out.

Also, you don't say if you get snow but snow tires are highly recommended for any snowy conditions.
