Hi Chris,

Dampness/Stains to carpets signs of water penetration.

All keys are present and work.

Check that all the seats fold properly and can be removed and replaced with ease as a lot of people use MPVs for carrying heavy loads but just drop the seat backs and rest the load on the seat backs thus the seats frames can become twisted.

You could check and make sure all the recalls have being attended too.

Other than that I'm sure you are aware of all the other things to check on buying a used car.
