Ask about the status of the warranty. Ask how many shutter actuations the used one has. Ask the store if it has ever been serviced.

As long as the store or Pentax is willing to transfer the warranty to you, and the shutter actuations are reasonable I would get the kit.
Unless you already have lenses.
Unless you are planning on buying additional, better lenses.
But in those cases you can still get the kit, sell the lenses and put the money toward something else.

It is possible you will want to upgrade these lenses for better IQ, but they will get you going. I'd require a good warranty on the used body, though.
