Mechanic Check (6/9)

During your test-drive, stop by a trusted nearby mechanic for a quick once-over.  It won’t take long if your mechanic knows that you’re coming; and if that shop wants your future business, they might do a quick inspection for free.

Always check with CARFAX for a car’s accident history before signing any paperwork.

Finally, in states that heavily salt their winter roads, look closely for rust damage. While a bit of surface rust will be inevitable, avoid any cars with excessive amounts of rust — regardless of the car’s mileage or price-tag!)
