    ^ Why it's important to always buy the Carproof report so you can see previous owners.

    yep.

    i still get shocked anytime used car buyers do not see a pre-purchase mech inspection + car proof as a baseline requirement for all purchases (unless they're in the market for deliberate junkies, priced below $2000 or whatnot)

    EDIT: however, when it comes to my comment on rentals, the thing is that rentals get abused. not if, but is.

    and by 'abuse' , we're not just talking accidents or negligent maintenance. we're also talking beating up on your seats, leaving questionable liquids in the floor mats, violently mashing the buttons or screens , really slamming your car doors....basically things that carproof would have no way of knowing it had happened, and a mechanic generally not discovering it, either (because it's not necessarily an issue of the car's mechanic, but rather its interior)

    Not sure about "negligent maintenance" with rentals. I worked for a family-owned rental franchise (a long time ago), and they did maintenenance by the book.

    One reason is they have to protect the warranty.
