Whenever you consider purchasing a vehicle, I think it's a great idea to take it to a Dealership, or someone very familiar with the vehicle and have them inspect it, especially when it is having problems before you buy it! There may be a reason the owner is trying to get rid of this vehicle. You shouldn't have to pay more than 1 hour of labor for a complete inspection of the vehicle, and it will be well worth it.

Ensure that the partion screen in the trunk is pulled out towards the rear of the vehicle and inserted into the slots on the side. Then make sure nothing is on top of this screen and/or no other luggage/materials are pushing from underneath.
