    I'm looking at a car for sale locally. They don't have the original window sticker. How can I tell if it's equipped with Skyhook? Any thoughts welcome. Also I noticed the owners manuals in the trunk appeared to have been wet at some point. I wonder if there was a leak into the glove box? Trunk? Any experience with that issue.

    Original bill of sale would list options. As owner's manual doesn't fit in the glove box that would be a problem with the trunk. If you slam trunk it dosen't close. You have to push it down gently. Great car.

    To be safe you should get one of those Car fax reports on car. I know there was a big problem in my area with cars that came from a flooded part of the Carolina's

    If it has Skyhook, you will have a button that says "Sport" in the center console, which will affect speed of shift and stiffness of suspension. Otherwise, it will say "Power", and will only affect gear change speed.

    In what way does the "power" button effect the car?

    Power shortens the time it takes to shift gears, Sport stiffens the suspension and shortens the shift time even more.
