Is 4500 Euros a good price for a 1997 Ford Galaxy TDI?

I'm in negotiations to buy a 1997 Ford Galaxy TDI with all the equipment like air conditioning. I don't understand cars much, so is this a good car? What are the car's good characteristics, and what I should be careful of? The price that we are negotiating is around 4500 Euros.

It's a 13-year-old car, so you can expect a few problems due to age and wear. In the UK you would only be paying £500 - £1000 for it. There's more in the Ford Galaxy entry in car-by-car breakdown at HJUK.
