I'm looking for a car and found one for private sale but upon starting it shows 'Check VSC, low washer fluid'. I'm not sure if these two messages are related or two separate messages. There's also a bit of rust on the corner of the rear passenger side panel that's in between the door and tail light.

 

Is there any advice on purchasing this car? I've asked about lowering the price so any advice on potential issues and costs is appreciated!

HI Lee

the only definitive way of finding out is to plug in a code reader and read the actual code - it could be as simple as fuel cap seal or something like an 02 sensor - I don't think the low fluid washer warning is related - if there is fluid in the reservoir it could be a faulty sensor.

The GS are also prone to rust on the leading edge of the bonnet especially underneath - so check hat properly
