I plan to ask these questions, but ever time I've gone to a small dealer such as this one they NEVER have any details as far as maintenance.
Do you know if this engine is a timing belt or chain? My truck has a chain and while I just passed the 60k mark, I don't plan on needing to change the chain until 120k or later as the previous owner changed the radiator fluid every 3 years and always did the oil change before 4k miles.
Also, 2 car seats and a teenager would be the load, but this is rare as we don't always have all the kids with us.
I will check under body for rust as well and start the car w/o radiator cap as this is a good way to see if there is a gasket problem. I plan to have a mechanic check it out as well before I buy it. =)
afterthought: I really wanted a 5spd to avoid transmission issues later down the line, but at least I won't have to teach my wife how to drive this thing
