You are on your own. If you like a car have a professional mechanic check it out before buying. There is no way CG's could check out millions of cars for sale. Car Fax only reports information that is reported to them. They don't check out cars either.


In my opinion 4 grand is marginal at best when you are looking for a "decent car".
