Hello everyone - Hope this is in the right place

Thanks for creating this awesome forum and meeting the wonderful people here. I am looking to get a 2016 A3 Audi vehicle and I am looking to the community to check if there is anything I should be looking out for while doing my inspection.

Things I will be looking out for are
  • coolant or oil leads
  • Weird noises coming from the engine
  • check the transmission for slips and jolt
  • verify all the electronics are working properly
I will post some images and mileage below if you guys have any other suggestions to check.

Thanks and I look forward to joining this community

Before taking it for a test ride, request a copy of the service history. If stuff like "brake fluid change" has been done then that suggests a well maintained vehicle. In the US, can you also check for accident history?

Thanks to everyone that contributed - after my initial physical examination, I was able to run a VIN check to actually see if I had missed anything.

It was eye opening to see that the vehicle had actually being rebuilt and had been in serious damage before. The report also showed photos of the previous damage.

With this information I was able to avoid buying a vehicle with bad previous history

Here's the vehicle report for anyone who wants to check it out - Get Instant Vehicle History Report
