  • 1. Check the oil level in 2.0 diesel cars - if it's been neglected, there can be serious engine damage
  • 2. The central locking system can fail - ensure all the doors lock and unlock easily
  • 3. The glovebox and dash can rattle in some cars. A test drive should expose this
  • 4. Stiff clutches or difficult gearchanges can be symptoms of a known gearbox fault
  • 5. Cabin is a refined place to be, with high-quality switchgear throughout
