For something that new make sure its one owner with a completed history. It should be in new condition, apart from maybe a few stone chips on the front. Try and get something that hasnt been modded yet as the ones that have been modded may have had a harder life.

Good Luck

Yes, the one im looking at is $40,000... Insurance is fine as i will do it all in my parents name and just have myself as a nominated driver....

Ok this may sound stupid, but i would check the spare tire, never know if you may need it i know in the Mazda's they only have a wheel barrow spare tire!

Smart thinking, just dont crash it because your insurance premium or whatever will be a grand or something!

If it has a hard tonneau cover, check to make sure it isn't leaking as a lot of them do (and its not just Holden, many aftermarket ones and other manufactures ones leak water).

And yeah, check the no. of owners and make sure it isn't a demo.

Here are some pics of the ute, assuming i did it right and they work. In terms of mods, lol i think being female and young my biggest interest is making it look good i.e. tortuga hardlid, wheels and dropping it. Its already got an aftermarket exhaust and sound system, so im pretty content.
Hope the pics work.
