The notes.

Hello drive live team, My friend bought a second hand 2012 high-end Korean car, it passed RTA test. He was advised to get it re-inspected also by the agency for more piece of mind. No damage was found. Two weeks later, a crack in the radiator caused the fluid to leak and got the engine overheated beyond possible repair. Despite precaution, the car is non drivable now. The engine and cooling need to be replaced. My friend is frustrated that the crack was not detected in any inspection. Please advise.
