Default questions for buyers to ask

What are good questions to ask when looking at a used K900? I don't mean common stuff, but issues specific to this model.

Here's my list so far:

Does it have the credit card key with it and working?
Is the chrome flaking off any of the wheels?
Are the tires flat-spotted?

I hope the actual owners can suggest some more for us poor wannabes...

If it's a Kia dealer and the car is <40k miles AND not a CPO, ask why. If it's CPO, have them show you paperwork as proof especially when the car is out of state.

If it's a non-Kia dealer or a private party, ask to see the maintenance records to ensure the previous owner(s) kept up with factory required maintenance.

Other than card-key, ask how many key(s) the car comes up. Two is better than just one fob.

Ask if the car comes with Owner's Manual.

Ask for high def pics that show the 4 corners of the car and each rim. Those are the most likely places for scratches.

How much tread is left with the tires? Good if almost worn out because that's your window to get new ones. You already know the OEM Hancook are POS.

See if you can get a pic of the front seat left side boosters. Its condition in relation to the mileage is often a good tell-tale of how much the car has been or hasn't been "babied".
