Carefully check the paint job of the car, look for any dent rest spots or scratches, Run your finger along the edges of the joints between the panels.
Check the trunk of the car make sure that there are no leaks which leads to rust, Wear inside the trunk shows the rough usage to the car.
Check tires, uneven tyre wear shows the bad alignment may be result of worn steering /suspension components.
Never buy a frame damaged car. Check for the welds inside the door jambs (result of a crash).
Open the hood look thoroughly, check for coolant leaks because it will result in changing the radiator. Check for oil burn smell .Check under the body for any leaks in engine and transmission. Check for the engine oil level, if the oil level is low or thick both will create problems. Check for any performance modification this could means that car is used for racing or abused.
Start the engine, difficulty in staring could be of battery .Look for any blue smoke means worn out engine.
If you are satisfied with car of your choice then drive the vehicle, never choose a smooth road, potholes and uneven roads will show the true condition of the car.
