ELEC­TRI­CAL HAS­SLES

Reg­u­lar use avoids flat bat­ter­ies and a host of elec­tri­cal has­sles. It’s cer­tainly worth en­sur­ing that every­thing works prop­erly, es­pe­cially the cli­mate-con­trol sys­tem, which can play up. Check that win­dows drop when the door is opened, and for in­op­er­a­tive cen­tral lock­ing re­motes – flat bat­ter­ies mean a code re-set by a dealer or spe­cial­ist. As for the cabin, dam­aged leather or wood ve­neer is pre­dictably pricey to re­fur­bish, so don’t ig­nore a scruffy cabin.

Check the con­di­tion of the cabin and that all the electrics work. Fixes are ex­pen­sive.
