Possibly Purchasing 2017 Sorento SXL AWD

Hello everybody, I'm looking to purchase a 2017 Sorento SXL AWD this weekend. It has 47k miles and looks like it's in great shape. It's a one owner and was owned by one of the managers at the actual Kia dealership.

After researching an hour or two here in the forums, I'm worried about the rear coupler. I took it for a test drive today, but didn't notice any sounds. How can I get this checked before I purchase? I don't want to purchase and then run into a bunch of issues that could have been avoided.

Also, is there anything else anybody could recommend me looking at on this vehicle before I purchase? It's a horrible time to buy a car, but my Optima was totaled in September and we need to replace.

Thanks in advance!

Just make sure you read up on the various stripped head bolts threads on here, since it's a V6. I'd want to know if there are any records at Kia of it having any warranty work done on it for that.

Good luck!
