I would do my homework on it to find out what's going on. If the carfax is wrong about the owners, it could be wrong about any accidents.

How do i do my homework? lol the lady showed me a paper from when she bought the car and it had like 47k two and a half yrs ago but she said she didnt get the carfax when she got the car...they had a BIG house lol. I asked my dealer to get the carfax info for me and he was like well Chris do you like any of OUR cars and then started trying to sell me a little smart car for 12k lol. He was like yeah that Maxima has had several owners and this smart car has only had one owner. When i asked how many he said, "it says 7 but i think it may be incorrect." Hope he isnt just lying to try an make me buy his car...People are so money hungry these days lol

Why don't you just run your own carfax? Carfax has a buy-back guarantee. If their report is not accurate, they'll buy the car from you.

Seven owners or 30, it doesn't matter as long as the car is maintained. Have the Nissan dealer check it thoroughly to see what it needs, including the AC leak, then decide what you want.

Good i like that idea...i may just do that... and also when i start the car it makes a weird rattling noise but then as you drive for like 1 min it just goes away. The lady said she took it to Nissan and Firestone and they couldn find a problem with it. More weird stuff lol but yeah i didnt know CarFax would do that. Interesting. Thanks

As stated before "DO Your Homework". Quit telling us what the lady said. Tell us what an independent mechanic says.

On paper and from the pictures the car sounds good. I would be most cautious about the discrepancy of owners with the Car Fax.

Yes Car Fax can have mistakes, and previous owners don't have to be honest or upfront when selling a used automobile.


Caveat Emptor
