Should I have my mechanic look at a used car I may buy?

Mechanical Checks for Used Cars

While it is always a good idea to have your own trusted mechanic check out any used car you are serious about buying, you should also consider taking the car to a dealer specializing in that make and model car for an inspection.

A new car dealer will have specific knowledge of your car (including whether any recalls have been issued). Some dealers also have sophisticated diagnosis and repair equipment that a local garage may not.
