I appreciate any advice any of you have. Thank you and wish me luck...I am freaked out right now.!!!!!
Normally the test drive is done before you make the purchase offer and hopefully you test drove the unit you are purchasing rather than a similar unit.
For my PDI I forgot to take a DVD and that is the one thing that bit me when I got the unit home. When I tested the AV system a day later I found all the cables were connected on the HDMI switch backwards.
Most important point I can give you is to do the PDI before you sign the final paperwork and if something is not working correctly tell the dealer to call you when it is fixed and leave.
Also, before signing the paperwork have the dealer make your first warranty appointment for a date between 75 and 80 days from delivery. Anything that is out of adjustment or other little items are only covered for 90 days from the date of purchase. You can always cancel an unneeded appointment but you can't always get one on the day you like.
One thing I learned is there is never a perfect PDI and something will be missed or forgotten. When you get the unit home and find an issue or can't remember something discussed during the PDI the forum is a click away.
Enjoy and have fun.
