I wholeheartedly agree with the independant checkout. I came across the perfect '92 with 75K for a very reasonable price. It had all the service records for everything, including 3K oil changes, from a dealer across the state, the interior and exterior were flawless, really as new. It drove great, but an inspection by another dealer revealed a transmission problem and a cracked frame the had been restraightened. Be smart, be careful.
