Looking at buying a car from a private sale. It's a student here. She has a 99 Hyundai Sonata with 120xxx miles on it. Talked to her and a couple of people that have driven it and some say it's electrical some mechanical, some major and some minor. I haven't driven it yet but I want some things to look for and some prelim thoughts.

Other than minor stuff (new taillights, oil change and tire rotation, etc) it has a problem - I guess when you accel there is some hesitation. It's being described as a couple of "jumps/skips". That's about all I know at this point. I know it's vague but any ideas? I am basically looking to know if it seems like a major problem (head gasket) or something minor?
