Do either of them have maintenance records, maybe noted in the owner's manual?
Haven't checked out the white one yet because it's a bit of a short distance away from me and haven't had the time. Trying to go this week. Black one only had one service record indicated in the CarFax. But I've seen a lot of CarFaxes and none of them ever listed regular, multiple services on the vehicle and the form says as much - that services may not be reported to CarFax. The dealer didn't have any service records, which I didn't like, but I'm trying not to focus on that too much. The dealer is a Dodge-Chrysler and their used car div seems quite a bit more developed than the typical place I've come across or would expect. They really seem to take it seriously. But then again I haven't biought a used car in forever, so maybe I'm being naive.
