Hey all, looking at a vehicle (to purchase/finance, not lease) that is 6-7 hours away – price, year, and mileage are all excellent, but (of course) Carfax notes a rear-end accident that was moderate, disabling, requiring tow. Title is clean and no frame damage is noted.
Is there any good way to have the vehicle independently inspected from afar? Any mechanic service that can get the car from the dealer, do a full inspection, and return it to them (at which point I’d head south and buy if it checks out)? And would a dealer typically allow this (appears to be an independent dealer, not a brand/factory dealership)?
Thanks for any insight.
