if i were you, id check the vin with AutoCheck instead. I've done a few cross checks with carfax and autocheck for some cars and found some things on the cars that didn't show on carfax.

Cross checking autocheck and carfax works GREAT.

I would deff look and feel around it to see if its been re painted to. Sometimes cars will have low miles because they were wrecked and havent been drivin much after and can also be in worst condition than a car with more mileage.. Im not saying this is the case but its something to look out for.. Also that engine seems to be a great engine. We had a 05 230k with 115k it ran amazing! Just take care of it and it will take care of you.

yeah that's what im really worrying about that it had some type of problem and it wasn't driven due to it...hope not..

but i will for sure check to see if it has been repainted


i wish i could afford to check on autotcheck just to make sure everything is ok...but i guess the carfax will be enough
