The Importance of an Inspection
Buying used? It’s crucial that you get an inspection from a trusted repair shop. Get as much history on the car as you can, from owner records to a report from Carfax or a similar service. And, if you feel the sellers aren’t being forthcoming, walk away. Also, if buying from an online site like Craigslist, be sure to take a friend, meet in a public space or if possible utilize a police station safe zone. Most stations are now providing this "safe zone" as free service to the community http://www.cleveland.com/avon-lake/index.ssf/2015/06/lorain_county_police_stations.html.
