Hi,my name is mike and I will assist you with your question.
These are good reliable vehicles that hold up fairly well. The thinks that you need to check are signs of any kind of leaks and smoke from the exhaust when starting the vehicle or driving. Feel for the gear box to shift smooth and not jerk. Last I would look down in the oil fill cap for sludge and request any maintainence history or records.
