look for....

electronic dash all light up
any faults on start up airbag faults aint uncommon.
Brakes, check the discs and pads are ok, 220 a set on the front! (pattern parts)
Check inside all ok, family cars do get a bashing.
Rear heated screens fail on most of them oddly.

THE BIG ONE! check when its cambelt was last done. Its a 1000+ job! MOST places want to take the engine out to do it! Although it can be JUST about done with it in.

Coil springs, make sure there not broken, heavy car!!!

and windscreen, its a HUGE windscreen so has a HUGE price tag to replace!!
Currently in Tiggerz_SRi's garage:
Audi a4 v6 avant, used to have bmw 525d se estate, 2001 Toyota Previa 2.4 VVTi GLS, '98 R FORD Galaxy 2.3 Ghia X a Espace III 2.2dT RXE and a Lag I 1.8RT!
