Welcome to the forum :)

Not an expert and I'm sure others will provide more info but as I have a 2.4 I would say look at the following:

Full service history (cambelt ideally at 60k or at 80k)
Temp gauge should sit firmly at half way

Other than that same as you would look at for any other vehicle:

uneven tyre wear
any 'mayonaise' on the oil filler cap
pulling under braking etc etc

T4's and especially the 2.4's are bullet proof if serviced properly. The 'minor' problems seem to be centre around rust/scabbing on wheel arches etc.

Anyway good luck T:
