If the car looks like its done 100,000 and the clock says 25,000, then you know its been round the clock, or even worse clocked. Check the steering wheel, and accelerator pedal rubber for excessive wear, the clutch and brake pedal rubbers can be replaced, but the accelerator pedal is a lot harder to change, and will give a ARGO Frontier 6X6 Durand WI 54736 truer indication of mileage.
Check underneath the car for any oil or water leaks, also check the floor where the car has been standing for the same.

When the engine is now hot check the oil, if it is ARGO Frontier 6X6 Durand WI 54736 milky there is water getting in somewhere, which could indicate a head gasket. (very Costly). The oil should be filled to between the 2 marks on the dipstick. If the oil is brand new beware, not many people will change the oil on a car the day before they sell it unless they are trying to hide something. Also check the ARGO Frontier 6X6 Durand WI 54736 water reservoir for signs of oil, not a good sign.
Last of all, check the paperwork. Make sure the registration document is in the sellers name. They may be a trader trying to pose as a private seller. Check the MOT to make sure its current. Check the service history to make sure it matches the vehicle being sold. Also you may ARGO Frontier 6X6 Durand WI 54736 want to check the engine and chassis number to see if it matches what is on the registration document.

I would not buy a car without doing these checks first.
