Can't you have it checked out before buying? A 2 mile drive seems like an inadequate test, given what you desribe. That said, I agree with Mott -- the smoke and the mayonaise thing could be from the car sitting around too long, and moisture building up. But why take chances -- can you convince the seller to let you drive it for a few days, so you can get a better impression?
