Items to Test When Buying a Used Car

Bought a used van. We had a mechanic check the engine and main structural unit. He gave us a list of things, some of which the dealer agreed to fix.

Some things that have come up that you need to check that might be easy to forget:

  • cigarette lighters – get power
  • CD player works (sure, the radio works but is the CD player good?)
  • Open and close all windows
  • Every switch and knob on the dashboard. If some are not working, perhaps wires are disconnected
  • Where is the spare tire? You want to know there is one, and it would be handy to know where it is
