  • Vehicle history: This can be important in the world of used cars. Since you are not the previous owner you may want to ask to about its history before making a final decision.
  • Trade in Value: If you are looking to trade your current in you may want to see how much you can get towards the purchase of your next used car.
  • Mechanical Integrity: Nobody wants to buy a car and then regret it shortly thereafter. If you have any questions or concerns, you may want to ask the buyer if you can bring your mechanic by to look over the vehicle in question.
