steering lock malfunction. look for one that has either never had that problem, or... one that has had it repaired/replaced by a dealer.

when test driving i would put the key in the ignition and take it out about a hundred times and listen for the steering lock engaging each time (a click at the wheel).

also if it has the XENONS and they are tinting purpleish, that means its time to replace. they cost $100 a piece at autozone. that might give you a little budge on price.
