Re: used FJ 150K miles. Price is right?
Think you made a wise decision to pass on that first one! Would do BOTH a CarFax and AutoChek on any vehicle I was considering whether from dealer or individual. AutoChek seems to sometimes pick up things that CarFax does not! Since you have VIN for checking either, go to any Toyota dealer and have it run through maintainance DB for service history, which most do while under warranty. Separate db, I think for warranty work and would check that, as well. Even if vehicle is out of state, you can still do this. Lastly, if you want the vehicle and a price is agreed upon, make sale conditional upon taking it to a Toyota dealer to do 144 point inspection that includes looking for "codes". You contact the service mgr yourself and arrange and pay for inspection yourself, so they are working for you, not seller. If all is well, you likely will have a good vehicle. Even better if seller has all service records, indicating a more conscientious owner!
