Less than 1 mile and blows coolant
After searching Craigslist and ATVTrader for several months trying to find a T4 with decent miles, at a decent price, I pulled the trigger last week on a new T4 LE for $12,800. My wife and I decided to go with the lime green color. The dealership delivered it to me yesterday and the wife and I took off down the road for a quick spin. I'm a paraplegic and have to get hand controls installed in the near future in order for me to drive it. Less than 1/8 miles down the road we started seeing smoke coming up through the steering wheel area and console. We did a quick turnaround and went back home. When we parked it, steam was coming up good. My son took the driver's seat off and the cover to see the motor area. It was then he noticed a lot of coolant on the skid pan and in the area around the engine. It was then he saw the water pump hose had blown completely off the inlet. The dealership is either coming out to fix the problem or haul it back to their garage and fix it there. No warning lights came on, so I'm hoping no damage was done. Not a good way to start out.
