Engines are fairly trouble free. dont believe any garage that the timing belt is done cause it never is on fresh imports. there is not really much to go wrong with engine other than power steering pump as Noel said.
The coil packs do go sometimes.

From my experience sometimes coil pack problems are down to using s**t plugs you get what you pay for. I havent heard any major with the tezza. I was told that with a rear wheel drive check for oil leaks in the rear and tyre wear thats it even.....
