Agree with checking but also either get under the vehicle yourself or get it up on a lift and checked out. I used Vincheck(dot)info which is free so might not cover as well but it caught over half the rollbacks and is free for 50? checks. More if you use multiple browsers. The rest looked good on autocheck but we're obviously just not reported.

I got lucky and a mechanic in the town where I bought mine gave a free checkup and I was able to look at everything on the lift. Allowed me to get the price knocked down over a grand to cover maintenance. Couldn't believe the guy wouldn't take money for the checkup saying he just wants to make sure nobody buys a bad vehicle.

I also looked at a pilot..I couldn't figure out why it was half the price of a runner and after looking online for reasons it might be, it was sold when I called back. Was 5k for a 2008 with just over 100k
