TRIM AND ELECTRICS
Cabin problems can include rattles from the dashboard and trim. High-milers could be suffering from scuffed and worn seat bolsters, while the GTA has seats unique to the model; secondhand ones fetch high prices. Water leaks aren’t unknown, so check footwell carpets for damp, and make sure that electrical gadgetry and air-conditioning systems haven’t gone AWOL. Noisy and juddering wipers are another potential niggle, and if the stylish Sportwagon appeals make sure the load bay trim is undamaged.
