Assessment of external state

So, if You find all the parameters of your car, the first thing is always important to evaluate the appearance. And there can be many issues. In particular, buy Skoda Hildren you can either without any body problems or substantial violations. Defects in the form of chips from the blows of the stones appear on this model auto often enough because the paint on the car is not extremely robust, and that is unpleasant, over these chips blown up paint and formed beetles. For a new car is not as significant, although as a result of practical use to paint the car will need to be about 1 time in 5-6 years. But on the other hand, such defects or should discourage buy a car, or need to forgive them and take care of the car.

What is also important for car Skoda Yeti – beauty, which undoubtedly has a meaning look. It is convenient and practical, but not always big. This applies to the Luggage compartment, which amounts to approximately 300-400 liters, agree a lot less than some of the crossovers of the same class. However, for the transport of small amount of Luggage this volume is enough. Can also be folded seat and increase free space to 1400-1600 liters. Note, if the former owner carried in the trunk of things with folded seats, they could be damaged. To assess this fact should be purely for aesthetic reasons, for which, in part, bought and sold relatively new car.

Technical inspection of the vehicle

Do not think wrong, but for late in the year release of Skoda machine Hildren must be started practically from 0.5 – 1 turnover. If You don't care, then you can proceed to further examination, but if the startup issue has become important, you should check the contact on the ignition system and a layer of soot on the candles.

Running engine, you need to carefully listen to him. It is not acceptable to the engine Skoda Yeti published the side noises or throw shaking in the hood. There is also the chance that when driving the former owner could damage the muffler. Because when you start, if damaged fasteners, or any of the joints, muffler, and his искрогасительная Luggage in the injured knee will make a nasty knock, which is carried in the cabin.

During прогревочной of the engine in the cabin should not be any smell of technical liquids, oil or fuel. This is extremely rare, although note that it was worth. The work new Skoda Yeti at idle speeds should smoothly and rapidly. If she as if overwhelmed or троит, then again it is necessary to pay attention to the candles, which are worth clean. You can also change during the test the package.

If all of Your check engine to succeed and nothing suspicious You haven't noticed, the  you can go to the other stages, namely, to the diagnosis in a HUNDRED.

As a result of auto reconverted into a lower gear. This is characteristic only for one type of engine and only in the case of ascent along the gravel road. As a typical inconvenience this concerns not always, though, the car of the middle class must fight with such deficiencies.
