While most of it certainly pertains to a new delivery, checking the oil filler neck for gummy black deposits, for example, may not be required.
With a new purchase, one trusts the dealership to properly prepare the vehicle for delivery. Then, trusts the warranty to correct any defect. The p-p inspection of a used vehicle (especially one sold as-is) can, and should be much more involved.
When we picked-up out 2018 Ti (build date 07/17) last Friday, the service tech made a point to mention that he checked the VIN # for the latest software, any TSBs, or RRTs that may pertain. He said that it was completely up-to-date with nothing needed. So far, at 100 miles, everything seems to be perfect.Completely agree, it's useful since it's a print out with most things on a couple sheets of paper. The individual can choose to perform what's appropriate for their situation.
As most have said tire pressure and software updates are key. Since these cars are just arriving I would hope they already have the latest software as well.
