If it is at a dealer, ask if the recalls have been done. Ask for a Carfax report. Maybe the previous owner brought it to them for service, you could ask to see the history.

Look for normal stuff like leaks, check the oil on the dip stick to see if it's clean or not (if not ask if they know when it was last changed), take it for a test drive and then drive it like ya stole it. See what it's got. When I bought mine I took it to a parking lot to see how much different from my F150 it was going to be to park. I decided I was good with it, but it was going to take some getting used to.

But...that's just me.
