Check Oil & water levels, Make sure there is no mix and no signs of overheating (light brown dry stuff around the engine bay)

As said, check all electrics. Make sure heater works on all fan speed settings. Check lights, Windows & especially the central locking, test it works on all doors.

Make sure it has the lap strap for the center belt & all seatbelts work and lock correctly.

Check carpets are dry in the footwells, could be a leaky screen or worse a heater matrix.

give it a good run upto temp, make sure cooling fans kick in. Clutch & brakes feel ok.

Happy buying

See if they chuck in a free Haynes manual too
