Looking at a 2001 to purchase. Low miles look good shape.

Please tell me of maintenance problems and upkeep? Any specifics I need to inspect?

Tires etc I'm aware of I need to know maintenance experience and mechanical problems . Engine trans etc. Cooling brakes.

All and anything you know that will help me make my decision.

Thank you,

What do the owner’s maintenance logs and receipts tell you? If maintained, drives well, systems work and priced right, buy it.

I have an 05 I bought new and my roof is indeed getting toasty BUT it was (stupidly) not garage kept. Maybe this one was.

What drive train? Mileage?

Any service records?

I personally would look for something newer.

Got to thinking. Mine is TPO. That one might be. Or it might be rubber.

If it was rubber I would pass.
