As I begin my inspection starting with the exterior, there was minor misalignment to the front hood/clip of this vehicle, (see photos). There are minor misc. scratches around the vehicle. There were scratches on the driver side rear quarter panel (see photo). Overall, the exterior vehicle in nice condition for age. I noted scratches and a crack on the underside panel below the front bumper, see pictures.

Inside the interior of the vehicle was clean (see photos). The sunglass compartment located on the center upper headliner would not close or open properly (see photo). The leather was in nice condition on all seats, no tears or major wear (see photos). A/C blows cold and heat blew hot. Heated seats powered on and heated. All gauges in working order All mirrors, windows and sunroof and all other accessories in working order.

Upon opening the hood, I examined the engine bay area looking for any abnormalities. Oil level was clean and at correct level (see photos). Brake fluid level and coolant levels were normal and clean. Belts and hoses appeared to be in good condition. No leaks visible from upper engine area.

The engine started up and idled well. The vehicle was then road tested and drove normal, full power no noises. Suspension was sporty riding and steering was normal. Transmission shifted normal through all gears. Rear-wheel drive engaged and seemed to be working as it should. OBD II system was scanned and no codes were present in vehicles PCM (Powertrain control module); 8 of 8 monitors were ready.

Tire Pressure System (TPMS)
The tire pressure monitoring light is on. This could be as simple as a tire that is low on air or it could be something else. According to the Instrument cluster TPMS monitors, it appears that the passenger front tire was low on air at 22 psi (see photo).
Computer Diagnosis/OBD2
Computer system scanned: no problems with current or pending codes. No problems with live data. It is possible for some sneaky sellers to erase codes before we arrive, in which case some issues may be hidden.
