Things to check

Check for fuel leaks around the injectors and injection pump, oil leaks- valve cover, oil pan, turbo drain and oil filter canister. Check trunk for any water intrusion. Check power windows operation and sunroof operation. Gently lift up the air cleaner and see if there is any play(this would indicate broken air cleaner mounts). Check for any unusual noises. Make sure the engine turns off properly with the ignition key. Check belts. Try to test drive it even if its in a yard or driveway. Even with checking it as much as you can you will probably still find some minor issues after you buy it, but thats what this website is for. Good luck.
