Check the records to see what parts have been replaced. Radiator and water pump a a common problem. Make sure all the windows work as the regulators are a weak point. All the warning lights on the dash should be off as any one can be $$$ repair.Drive it on the HWY to make sure there is no shimmy at speed and no brake pulsing. It should be smooth as glass.
I have a manual trans but you should pay attention to how the auto shifts. Make sure all fluids were changed regularly.
Turn on the AC and make sure the electric fan visible through the kidneys is working. These fans fail and are needed for AC to work when not driving fast. Also $$$.
