Make sure it has a tune-up(new spark plugs, spark plug wires, air filter, fuel filter, PVC valve, oil change, rotor and distributor cap.) Check your power steering fluid, transmission fluid, and brake fluid.Check your brakes and tires. Make sure you have a good battery. Check to make sure your vacuum lines aren't rotted out. Also check the coolant to see if it'* full and the coolant is good. If isn't flush it, and put new coolant and thermostat in. Make sure there are no burned out lights in your tail lights and head lights.

Last thing, make sure it runs.
