Used car questions
I'll be calling a few people about a used car and I've compiled a list of question I want to ask before checking it out further and what-not. Below are the questions I've thought of so far. Does anyone have any others that might be worth asking during the initial phone call, or later?

Why are you looking to sell this vehicle?

Has it ever been in any accidents?

What is the make, model, and year?

How many miles does it have on it?

Has it gotten regular oil changes and checkups?

What kind of milage does it get?

Does the vehicle have any nuances?

might wanna ask about brakes and exhaust also. when was the last time they were changed. making any noises. see if the tires have any cracks in them how much tread is left. ask about leakage. ask if they have all the maintenance records for the car also.

Ask when the last tune up (Read: BOTH plugs and wires) was done.

I'd change "nuances" to "problems." Average seller won't understand.

Ask for the VIN number. Then go look it up.

Make sure you test drive the car before buying; verify they gave you the correct VIN. Take someone who knows cars with you.
