I saw a 2006/07 Civic (Re-born in urf-e-aam) and the car seems in quite a good nick. However, I wanted to get it checked in detail before I buy it. Personally I am not very good at inspecting cars so I might not be able to implement the various 'checks before buying' threads in PW.
Can anybody suggest where to take the car for a detailed checkup in Islamabad where I can get the engine, transmission, suspension and electronics checked? Somebody told me that original mileage can be checked using some gadget even if the meter is reversed.
Any tips in this regard will be very helpful as I am planning to finalize the deal tomorrow.
most of the reborns have faulty power steering, engine foundations, pulley tensioneer. check the front steering bushes or 'hissa'. catalytic converter should be without any blockage! no ECL! rest no other issues on the car.
I didnt take it to Honda 3s, found another one in I10 for the purpose. And he mentioned that tensioner mein masla hai, steering box mein play hai and I don't remember the third issue that he mentioned.
Lastly he opined that there is a lot of paint in the car. So dropped the idea. Bought a very clean X Corolla instead AH
