Buying a Renault Koleos - what should I check?

I am interested in buying a 2008 Koleos 4x4 manual with 39,000 miles, price £5650. Are there any particularly good/bad points on this vehicle, things to watch for etc. What is your opinion on this vehicle?

We tested it in Morocco in 2008: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/renault/renault-ko.../ Not a lot of feeback in carbycar: www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/renault/koleos-2008/ It was much more popular in France where you still see quite a few.
