Urgent Advice Needed


I saw a GTV today & have basically agreed to a deal with the seller. In fact, I found the car by coincidence. Saw it parked, left a note for the owner and the rest is history.

It's a 2002 V6 GTV manual transmission. Done 74k km. The owner has changed the timing belt and air conditioning in the last 6 months.

I also saw a complaint regarding noise from underneath the car on one of the service records. Now that I'm back home I do recall some noise from underneath while I was coming to a stop after the test drive.

Anyone know what this could be? Also anything else I need to check for?

Or bearings on the back if it's a droning noise. Knocking might mean bushes if they aren't powerflexed
