My car has 63000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. I recommend performing a pre-purchase inspection and a 75 point safety inspection on the vehicle prior to buying the vehicle. Anyone can say that their car is in good shape, but there could be maintenance that needs to be performed on the vehicle due to lack of maintenance.

If you need further assistance with your inspection, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
