Asked in Chevy Impala
Would you buy a used 2000 and up Oldsmobile intrigue or Chevy impala 3.8?
If they could meet my needs I would have no problem with either. If you aren't good at checking things out, have a mechanic friend go through it for you to make sure everything is working properly. If you don't have a mechanic friend, find out who your friends recommend and PAY someone to go over the vehicle. You'll want to get something that has been maintained properly, and you can't always tell from looking at the maintenance records, those can be faked, and some people do the maintenance but don't write it down, so in effect the records mean nothing. The only part that's important is how is it running.
