Fine whilst you own it... perhaps not for the next! [emoji20]
I’d n very buy a vehicle from near the sea, and if it has a tow bar I’d always ask if it’s decent at towing and is it any good on a slip/beach, try and work out what they used it for With a positive spin... then walk away.
Seen too many nice new vehicles “dipped” by the lease owner or wealthy owner, who knows they will pass the problem on to the next.
I got stung buying a cheaper car from northern Scotland, then found the brakes and cv joints all needed doing as there’s always so much salt on the roads each winter. Never again from north of the border.
