Test the breaks by doing an emergency stop on a quiet road. Are the gears smooth? These are all the things you need to pay attention to. The tyres Make sure that the tyres are in good condition and that you are still going to get a couple of years out of them. Make sure that the treads are legal and that you are happy about everything. Read the paperwork carefully. You want the vehicle’s service history too, so make sure that you read it.
