    I would say to check it like any other car. Look for any fluid leaks. Drive it and see how it rides. Check the tranny and listen to the engine. They make some noise but shouldn't make too much. Best to have a mechanic you truct check it. I have my buddy put any cars or trucks I buy on a lift and check everything over.
    Also look under the hood, jambs, and under the car for overspray to see if it has had paintwork. If it has then start looking for evidence od any major accidents.
