SC430 What to look for when buying

Recommended Posts

Found a nice 2003 SC430 vert locally. I have a friend who wants a convertible for his wife. Looked at the car once and seems pretty clean. Minor front left CarFax with no airbag deployment. Car is silver with black gut. Going back and would like to know what specifically to check. Miles 116k in Norfolk.

timing belt and water pump and suspension components are the big ticket items if the car drives okay. 

If i had it to do over I would look for a totally straight body with no scratches.  Look carefully at the dash and interior.  Try everything. 

Only after I owned the car did I realize that the horn doesn't work  (can be expensive to fix), needs new antennae, etc.
