melted headlight switch
bad terminals in the taillamps
operational power windows, sunroof, mirrors.
check for difflock function (drive slowly in a straight line and turn the 
switch to position 2, both lights should light. if not don't stress but use 
as a bargaining point)
evidence of water in trunk
evidence of leaky windshield seal
funny tire wear
rust on underbody
bent frame rails or a-arms from poor jacking technique
condition/integrity of exhaust system.
