Preparation proves the key to success. This is the philosophy you embrace, with every day meticulously analyzed, organized, and planned. You don’t believe in surprises. You instead believe in contingencies - which is why you’ll fuse your search for used cars with an inspection checklist.
To ensure that you find the perfect pre-owned platform, Sound Ford Renton recommends creating a comprehensive checklist - one that will allow you to examine every vehicle, noting advantages and potential disadvantages with ease. Observe the condition of each model’s:
Exterior - windshield and wipers, body panels, trunk and hood seam alignments, headlight functionality.
Tires - tread patterns, alignments.
Engine - battery terminal appearance, signs of leakage or spillage, presence of unexpected odors.
Suspension - body alignment, responses while cornering.
Interior - cabin and seat materials, condition of all mechanicals (including air conditioning, heating, stereo, and power windows), functionality of gauges and lights, alignment of doors.
