check the DMV vehicle history reports. Accidents have to be reported to the DMV.

If it has a salvage title on it, more than likely it's been in a major accident so dont buy it!!!

I had a situation similar to this with one of my previous cars. Turned out both the carfax and dealer had giving me wrong information about the vehicle history. The car was actually in a right rear collision and went through major repairs. Had a PPI inspection done from a trustworthy mechanic (oxymoron?). He called me up telling me to look underneath this car and good god was it a mess. Who ever had done the structural repairs and body work just did an absolute piss poor job. I was astonished the dealership would even sell it like that so I sued them. Got a $25,000 settlement and the licensed certifier lost his license for selling me a death trap on 4 wheels. So do your research thoroughly!!
