Open the bonnet and listen carefully if the tappets are noisy for some seconds when you start the engine.
Check if all the equipment works fine, the air con, lights, wipers, cd player, alarm, open boot from remote etc. Ah, ABS and ASR also!
Keep looking at the instruments while test driving (look at the road too wink )to see if you get any error messages or warning lights (airbag for example).
Go in a flat road and leave the steering wheel, check if the car keeps going straight.
Avoid getting a car with lowered suspension. Many parts are strained, steering, axle shafts, loose interior etc
No need to mention that you should check the body for any crash or repair marks (colour or glaze differences, used screws on side wings, doors etc)
Avoid getting the 105Hp version.
