Hi When going to buy a used car, how do you go about testing/looking at it. Typically this will about 30-60 minutes. What do you look for, and how do you go about it. I’m looking to get a 6/7th generation Honda accord. Things that are important to me are:- 1) Does it use an excessive amount of engine oil, and how can I find that out in 30 minutes? 2) Is the engine ok? 3) Is the automatic gearbox ok? 4) Leaks (oil/coolant). I hate leaks. 5) Does it use/loose any coolant. 6) Rust. As welding can be expensive. 7) Bushes, ball joints, suspension bits. 8) Dodgy MOT passes. 9) I’m sure there are others. Any info/you-experience would be useful. Thanks PS- ideally i'd like to drive for 2 months, and then I would know exactly what the car is like. Obviously, that's not going to happen in real life, unless you're getting it from a family member.
