Sorry for the confusion but the person selling the car is an old man

ya i was concerned about the cic idrive so maybe if he goes lower on his price that would be an awesome deal.

A prepurchase inspection is when you take the car to a dealer for example and they charge a fee and tell you the condition of the car and what is wrong or needs replacing. Usually thorough so that it covers all the areas of the car. You can get them done at third party shops or mod shops as well

Thank you guys I will look around for a local dealership close to where he lives so I can have the car inspected just in case.
