I'm off to look at a couple of cars on friday, both 2.4 auto tourers, so I thought I'd ask a couple more questions to prepare myself. Being a heavy vehicle mechanic I'm confident about looking a car over before purchasing, I know to thoroughly check the power tailgate and with a massive thanks to Defiant I have a sat nav DVD to check the system works, I'd like to ask about the engine, my only experience of VTEC is being in the back of a Civic Type-R, should I expect something similar with the 2.4, i.e more noise and power at a specific rev? From reading through this forum I have learnt that these engines seem pretty bullet proof, both cars have a FSH, so anything specific I should look for engine wise? either during the test drive or looking under the bonnet, also anything to look out for on the auto box? Apologies for asking you more questions but the first car is a 2 1/2 hour drive away and the second another 30 mins up the road, so I want to be absolutely sure what I'm doing. Cheers guys.
