Everything!

Many dealers use a 3rd party who do the assembly, discard of the crating material, and deliver the unit to the dealership. It's still up to the dealership personnel to go over the unit. If you're around it long enough, you learn what items the 3rd party install on each model and know exactly what to look at. For example, mirrors are usually just threaded in and not tightened.
