Questions to Ask the Seller

This is a good summary for your questions to ask the seller.

About 2 years ago when I was researching for used car to buy off craigslist, I read a lot about cars on and learned about the right questions to ask. The only thing that I did not do was purchase a vehicle history report.

However, thanks to detailed research & of course, a car inspection, I loved the vehicle every since. Thanks guys!
