Always ask about any maintenance records. Anything that shows proof. And ask if there are any mechanical, engine, transmission, electronic problems cause you don't know what you are getting into unless. You've worked on cars physically and don't care about problems. Test drive the car is a must.

Accelerate it
Brake it
Turn the wheels left and right
see if there is any pulsation, vibration or any type of noise while driven
Turn on and off all the electronic features make sure all of them work
Check fluid level, oil, pwr steering, brake and trans oil
Check for wear and tear on the car. Any sign of abuse
Check belts, hoses any type of leaks
Tire wear if its cupping or it needs an alignment

All these things can reduce the price of the seller no ifs no buts. Cause rember you are putting money on a second hand car tht you know nothing bout

I'm saying these cause this is what I do for a living and I'd hate for people getting F'd over on something that was over priced
