Need Carfax/Autocheck help
I'm pretty in the know on Volvo's having owned 12 of them so far. But what I don't know is carfax and used cars. I know to avoid former rental cars and I know everyone prefers one owner direct sales to multiowner and dealerships, but I also know good $.
looking at a 2005 Volvo XC90 in San Antonio with 111k. The right mix of colors, white and brown. Mama likes it a lot. We have not though been to see it as we are in Austin. But maybe tomorrow morning. Before I go though I had a few thoughts from the reports:
one "accident" in Carfax not Autocheck minor no airbags.
1 - 0-26k (05-08)
2 - 26k-98k (08-12)
3 - 98k-111k (12-15)
Autocheck reports the second owner as a lease/rental/fleet. I am not sure on the third owner since it is not a lot of miles, minimal entries in carfax, and much of the entries at the same shop co-owned by the dealer selling it. infact 6/14 that shop performed a "Pre-Purchase inspection" then again in 7/14.
Good things are the timing belt was done in October, so there is a $1500 service taken care of. It has been up awhile so hoping they will take closer to 5k vs the $5800 asking.
SO does anything look fishy?
