Check the wheel bolts for tightness. Check the tires (including spare) for proper cold inflation pressure.

Have someone observe the operation of exterior lights while you work the controls. Check turn signal and high beam indicator lights on the instrument panel.

Door Latches

Check for positive closing, latching, and locking.
