Question 2003 Jetta GL 1.8T

Hey guys. I'm coming from NASIOC and have a few questions. I wanna buy this car. But I've heard bad things in terms of reliability esp. at 100k miles. Opinions are appreciated.

Check when timing belt was last replaced
Check when coilpacks were serviced
Drive it for 50 miles so any cleared CEL's come back on
Check all service records
Check oil before and after a lengthy drive to see if turbo burns oil, if it does don't buy it.
