    The only way to make sure is to take the car to a good mechanic and him/her look it over. It is called a pre-purchase inspection. this will give you peace of mind.

    Hello , if this car has a 3.8 l engine in it , then i would be exspecially carefull, depending on the mileage , they are notorious for the front cylinder head gasket going bad ,, witch is a costly repair
