Deposit on an 05 SRX

Recommended Posts

My dad is close to getting an 05

v6 AWD SRX with only 5,500 mi

from the dealer.

Under the hood, on the driver's

side fender is hand written, "crush

zone". The car also pulls to the

right. Other than that it's in great

shape.

Does this seem suspicious?

Anything else I should inspect?

He'll be getting the extended

warrantee. Thanks.

Was the SRX originally sold by the dealer, or did they buy it at auction, or take it in trade? If they serviced it they should also be able to show you any service or repairs it has had.

If the SRX was previously wrecked, the dealer should have repaired it completely; the fact that it pulls to one side is a bad sign of proper repair.

There have been reports of the SRX not having its alignment done right, talk with them about it and it could be just the alignment is off.

The other guy's advice is excellent. I would add this: As with any used car, get the VIN and run a CarFAX.
