Pre-purchase inspection issues
I had a MB dealer perform PPI on 05 SL55. The report came back fairly clean, and I purchased the car about a month ago. Since then, I have found many issues that I thought would have been caught in the inspection. Some are minor, like missing jack and compressor; others, not so much, like driver's seat heater that doesn't work, and my biggest concern - when I go out each morning, the suspension is down on the left front. ABC warns me 'car is too low'. I can easily raise it back up with the console switch, but I suspect there is a leak.
This is the kind of thing I would have thought a PPI would catch. I have had other MB inspections, and they have been pretty good, including a CL65 with bad ABC.
I have not approached the dealer that did the PPI as yet. I'm not sure what to expect, but I am guessing that they will assume NO liability. Does anyone else have experience with a bad PPI?
