Buying a base 2012 golf 2.5l... what to look for when inspecting?

As the title says, I'm going to buy a used 2012 gasoline golf with about 48k miles on it. are there any specific things I should look for when inspecting it and during the test drive? are there any parts that are known to fail that I should look out for?
thanks in advance.

Is it MT or DSG?
If manual, check the clutch, shifting thru each gear etc.
Check if they have service records etc. Normally you can somewhat get an idea how well the car was taken care of and/or if it was beat on.
And def check if they did the 40k service. They might have just put it off knowing they were selling it, and then you'd get stuck ending up paying for a scheduled service that should have been done 8k miles ago
