    Look at the front of it as you approach it, if it grimaces you know it's been abused

    Usual things, I'd expect - saggy suspension, loose steering, unexpected engine noises, vibrations, mayonaise, high levels of blow-by gases (remove oil cap and check for large pressure and listen for excessive 'dum dum dum') - apart from that you ain't gonna know.

    Kerbing of alloys, creaking and rattles while driving, paint all one colour, bumpers aside that is, chipped screen is a wiggler, it will need attention as it will crack at some point, tyre wear, check the edges.
