How to tell if used lens is ok?

I've bought a used 16-85 dx lens for general use on my D7100.
Optically it seems fine from a couple of quick test shots. The af motor works, but seems on the noisy side, and I can hear the VR chattering when active. This its my first real ultra sonic lens, and the first with VR. The only similar lens I have its an 18-55 non VR kit from my D50.

So how doI tell if its ok?
