in my opinion, an 207cc with skd8014g means the current owner didn't get it first hand. my 2 cents.

I don't drive a CC but can chip in what to look out for.

Roof. Open close the roof. Listen for funny sounds
Gearbox. Listen and feel the gear change from gear 1,2,3,4. Engine brake,4,3,2,1.
Engine mount. Are you shaking when stopping at traffic light.

Also listen for funny sounds in the car. But since it's not new, some weird sounds like squeaks and rattles are inevitable but listen to where they come from.

This car needs some tender loving car, not by touch but through your wallet  Laughing

Like someone told me, you have to be mentally prepared when you own a french car. Parts are costlier than Japs. Temper also.

Thank you 308..

I had tested the car..

Roof. No funny sound.
Gearbox. Not really sure how to listen or check as may be my first auto car
Engine mount. Yup, it vibrate slightly when brake is applied and increasing vibration when brake is release at high speed(without stepping on the accretion pedal).

It does have weird squeaks sound when engine is first start up and will be louder when applying oil even when the car is not moving at all.

Any Idea? should I have this Lion?

Maybe you try another used unit to compare?

The squeaks can be solved by changing the fan belt or some idle pulleys.

But when you said vibration when brakes are let off, sounds more serious. To fit it all, surely can be done. But at what price??? That's the question.
