If it's a 16v then there are growing issues over the waterpump failing and causing the cam belt to fail - this is not an issue with 8v's, so ensure that the water pump is replaced with the belts - the official guide is 5 years or 72k miles but most users are tending to change at 60k miles and 4 years (and it is which ever occurs first).

Other than this listern out for suspension noises and check that all the warning lights come on at start up - people sometimes pull the warning bulb out to cover issues.
