I’m looking to buy a used Honda Fit through a dealer (non-certified, Hyundai dealer) and found a 2008 manual with only 17k miles on it. I realize the mileage is extremely low for the amount of years but didn’t rule it out completely thinking maybe the owner just used it to tool around town etc. My father, however, has me paranoid about odometer fraud and anything else that could seem too good to be true. Any advice interpreting the Carfax and original listing (below) would be helpful though I realize they’re not always accurate.
A few things…
The previous owner seems to have been very on top of service (even possibly over-zealous but perhaps the original dealer convinced them it was needed). Does any of the service record seem odd?
Is it normal that the battery was replaced right after being sold the first time?
I spoke with Honda reps about the recall and they said even though it’s not under warranty it can be fixed for free at any Honda dealer since it was a safety recall.
Thanks for any advice you can offer!! Never bought a car before.
