Please Help!! In order to deliver to me my new Brera (used 3.2 Q4) the genius in the towing truck decided to lift the front wheels and then tow the car with the rear wheels rolling for approximately 15 km.... Started immediately the car and tried for a short distance
but luckily did not hear any strange noise. However do you think central differential has been damaged?? Is there any test / inspection that can be done to verify condition???

You DO NOT tow an AWD car on two wheels.

I would not accept to buy this car knowing that they have towed
it in such a way for such a distance.

:tut:


Any damage would be minor (for the moment) and may only appear in a few more
1000kms.

When towing HGV's the drive shaft to the rolling wheels is disconnected...I would at least want it in writing from the people you bought it from, confirming they knew it was towed, just in case a related fault appeared after a while, as stated by Nev....

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear...

Indeed, what this man said. I'd refuse the vehicle.
