On the door tag, what is the date of mfg?

Pull the intake tube off of the turbo and inspect the turbine wheel. Make sure the edges are nice and sharp, not rounded or gouged. Also look around for any leaks from under the engine and transmission. Grab the drive line and wiggle it to see if it has any movement. Take it for a test drive, from about 20mph put it to the floor and see how it does. Black smoke? Transmission shifting firm or sloppy? Firm is good, slamming and flair shifting is bad.

Other than those few things to check out, sounds like a good deal.

slam shifting is when it feels like it is trying to shift and then it slams into gear.

Flair shifting is when it starts to shift and the engine revs up a little and then the shift completes.
