Buying a convertible is often a dream come true. But be careful to check certain points when buying.
We all dreamed of owning our own convertible, in order to roll the hair in the wind during the beautiful days. And while these are coming back for good, many of you want to take the plunge and get yourself the convertible car of your dreams. But be careful, because some precautions are necessary when buying, so as not to be tricked and end up with a car that will cost you too much to repair. Discover the three things to look for when buying a convertible.
The canvas hood
This is undoubtedly one of the most important and above all the most obvious points. When buying, be sure to look at the condom, which must be in good general condition. Take a look in particular at the folds as well as at the seams, which must not be damaged or cracked. Everything must obviously be waterproof and the roof must not have any tears.
The retractable roof
If you opt for a convertible equipped with a retractable roof electrical, check that everything is working properly, and that nothing is broken. The movement should be smooth and the control should work instantly. No suspicious noise should also be heard, and the locking should take place correctly, without driver intervention. If you have the slightest doubt, go your way, because this type of system is generally very expensive to repair.
The rear window
This advice is especially valid if you buy a convertible with a condom canvas, once again. Make sure the bezel, if not glass, is in good condition. It must not be cracked, opaque or yellowed, and especially not torn. If this is the case, it is better to look elsewhere, because again, its replacement can quickly become quite expensive.
