    Petrol or diesel?

    In general, if the ECU light is off, then nothing expensive needs to be fixed. The only thing I might suggest is reset the engine codes (whether there are any or not), then see if the car still runs ok.

    Of course, if the light is on, then it's up to you whether you even try and take it for a test drive.

    Check that the pollen filter has been correctly fitted or else water will leak into the car, and also look for signs of neglect.

    This. Also check the front footwells aren't damp as this can be a sign of the above, or leaking door seals.

    check all door seals and foot wells,mine leaked front and rear.
    if it has had water ingress,chance are one of the central convenience modules may be up **** creek.
    which will mean lack of central locking,alarm problems,no electric mirrors and/or windows.Not cheap to buy from a dealer,but circa 60 quid from a scrappy,plus coding it up.
