with used cars when we knew the previous owners….if you know how they take care of things you know pretty well along with their records of maintenance what that car will be like.
but my mother in law did this for years (before she died). My father in law still has the car that they purchased from one of the rental car companies in 1995.
I guess I just like the idea because you don’t have to haggle. I’m really bad at that and I’d be taken advantage of every time.
