Default Common Problems?

Just wondering what some common problems are to look for in 93'* since I am looking at purchasing one that "appears" to be in great shape. Haven't checked it out yet. Mine has a rusted trunk and got stolen and beat up on so looking for a new one

The L27 engine used in 92-94 was one of the most reliable. The LIM gaskets eventually start to leak and need to be replaced, but if no DEX coolant was used in the engine, usually last past 200K. 94 and 95 models have more than normal problems with the PCM (computer). Grab handles break. Headliner delaminates. Door seals shrink and allow water to leak under carpet.
