some things to check

Benzman500, this topic has been covered many times and you can get more info by doing a search in the archives.

Just off the top of my head here are a few things to look for.

1. of course since it came from up north I would check it good for rust in areas that could be problematic in the future.

2. have a compression check done.

3. check trunk area good for rust (sign that rear window seal is leaking).

4. Check under floor mats for rust (sign that there are drains plugged and foot areas are fillin' up with water whenever it rains).

5. of course make sure that the power windows work, sunroof (if applicable) is working and it has smooth travel.

the list goes on and on, about things you should check. This website has been invaluable and has taught me so much about what to look for when purchasing a used vehicle. "I wish I knew then what I know now..."

Good luck,
