Get Inspection - Carfax is worthless.

You need a pro inspection - repaired accident damage is not found on Carfax unless it went through a police report or major insurance claim. 2001 is also out of warranty for Catalytic converters if they are bad. Not to mention, buying a car in IL (like I did stupidly) offers the LEAST buyer protection in the USA. No disclosure requirements at all for dealers. CHECK EVERYTHING, and get all of their claims about the car in writing. Good luck!

Thanks for the replies, I will most definitely be having the car inspected before I make a move.
