Take your time checking it over, I like small dealers, seems like your money is not wasted as much. There are good and bad dealers, just like in everything, try to ask around and then take a gamble

Bring your mechanic along to take a look at it, or tell them you'd like to take it to your mechanic to inspect it. You'll pay a small fee to your mechanic, but worth it in the end.

Make sure it's a quality car, I've bought 2 used Prius's, 2 Avalon's and a old Land Cruiser from small dealers with no problems. Just assume the dealer is useless, because they mostly are, Look for a quality car with excellent reliability, and figure out what the car is worth from edmunds or Blue book, take five hundred or a thousand off that figure and don't pay much over that. And check that car fax for recurring issues or just a lot of issues and don't buy if there are.
