What to Look for In a Used Car

I recently purchased a used Ford F-150 with about 110,000 miles on it. When I bought it the owner said it was accident free and had not been driven very often. I was wondering if you have any tips for maintaining the car in good working condition? Should I bring the vehicle into a shop for an evaluation? What should I be worried about or have checked since the car is used? I bought from a private owner not a dealer.


Hi there

I would use this pre purchase checklist and see what you can do yourself and hire your mechanic to do the stuff you can not. Although you already bought it, you can still get a good idea of the current condition and needed repairs.

Used Car Check List

you can also use this maintenance check list I put together in conjunction with the manufacture check list to stay on top of your maintenance and reduce unexpected repairs and break downs.
