Check for hesitation when cold too, tis common with that model, stops doing it as soon as up to temperature.
Check history for recent cambelt & water pump change.
Check for Speedo replacement also a common failure & therefore suspiciously low mileage (ours says 40K when 70K is nearer the mark)
Check ALL the electric windows for operation.
Check for ANY damp especially passenger side which affects electrics.
Check that BOTH keys work (we got caught coz only one did as they were on the same ring).
Don't let this list put you off, we love ours.
You are only young once, but you can be immature forever
