A Pre buy Car inspection : The Road Test

During the road test, we'll perform a series of checks to assess the vehicle's performance at both cold and operating temperatures.

Warm-Up and Extended Inspection:

  • To ensure proper functioning at operating temperature, we'll keep the engine running while conducting a more thorough inspection. This allows us to identify potential issues like:
    • Serious oil or water leaks that might not be apparent when the engine is cold.
    • Warning lights on the dashboard that might only illuminate once the engine reaches temperature.

Listening for Issues:

  • While idling and driving, we'll be attentive to any suspicious noises emanating from the engine, drivetrain, or suspension.

Functionality Checks:

  • We'll verify the functionality of various components:
    • Exhaust system
    • Gear changes and engagement (including 4x4 engagement/disengagement, noting terrain limitations)
    • Wheel bearings (checking for noise)
    • Brakes (operation and noise)
    • Speedometer
    • Cruise control (if equipped)

Reporting and Transparency:
