Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Go into the glove box and take a look at the service records...if this is a dealership, a carfax report could be given, then you'd have a record of the prior maintenance....see if for example has seen a timing chain or belt service, the brakes, tires belts and waterpump service...all these little things should be tended to with added mileage on schedule for a reliable vehicle~

the MINI I own takes a look at every little thing...the windshield wipers front and back...all the lightbulbs (many on the mini) condition of the waterpump and auxilliary drive belt 26 points of attention...they even vacuum every last crumb from the carpets~
