Ditto on the Carfax being pretty worthless for accidents. First anything under $3000 in damage without a police report is not reported. Second- any repairs made by a shop that does not use the modern computerized VIN based estimating and ordering system will not show up. Carfax also doesn't give any info about catastrophic mechanical failures or recurring problems. It IS good for seeing the number of owners and liens the vehicle has in its past.

Have a mechanic you trust check it over, and then go with your instincts. If it feels right to you--any real doubts-walk away.
