Newbie, needs advice

Hey guys,
hows it going ?
First post on here, Seen a decent Fiat Grande Punto, 56 plate, just under 50k mileage its going for four and a half Gs but im hoping to cut it down to around 4. I will be going back tommorow to check the car out, Is there any common faults and problems i should look for in the car as this is my first car and don't know what to check for ?
Thanks Alot

My 56 1.2/8v Active 5dr was around that price (actually 4.7K exc road tax) - but two years back in June 2008 at 12.8K miles. Sold it for 4K to a dealer in Oct 2009 at 36.4K miles. Only problem was the kiddie-car int. door handles - but the temp sensor could be temperamental, & an access panel under the wheel arch was missing. Otherwise (outside of services), tyres & brake pads (but not really needed). 50 av.mpg easy.
