Lack of repair records

If the seller can't show you accurate repair records, you should assume the car hasn't been reliably serviced. Approach the condition of the car with plenty of skepticism, and have it thoroughly checked out by a reliable mechanic. On the flip side, a detailed set of records is a great indication that the owner has taken maintenance and repair seriously and that car may have been well cared for.Patuxent Publishing
