Looking to buy a Z11 today - any advice?
  • I'm off to CID today to test drive and hopefully buy a 2008 Cube in Ash Violet with only 15K miles.

    Could anyone let me know what I should be looking out for re. common faults/issues?


    This is the car I'm looking at:

  • There is a buyers advice at the top of the forum that lists most of what to look for. Japanese imports tend to be rust free as they don't salt their roads like we do so that's not usually an issue. Depending on mileage check the timing belts been done etc. I guess the only odd one you might not check usually is check all the doors lock and unlock on the central locking as the actuators can fail and aren't easy to get hold of. Having said all that if it's a CID car your more than likely ok as never seen anyone complain about a car from them.
