I’m looking to buy a used Toyota Camry 2005 from a private party. The car looks to be in beautiful condition and only has 6,000 miles on it. The seller wants 9,000 dollars for the car. I took it to my mechanic for a pre-purchase insepction and she said there are no problems with the car and that it’s ready to drive. I test drove it and it’s really nice.
I questioned the seller about the exceptionally low mileage and he provided me with the entire service history of the car. From the paperwork the car was taken for service regularly (every three months).
Should I be concerned with the exceptionally low mileage? If the car had sustained damage due to non-use would that have been something my mechanic would have seen in her inspection or is that something that can go unnoticed?
