Yes and no. If the seller is a do it yourselfer they'll have receipts for the oil and filters for the oil changes. For example, the oil changes I do myself on my Grand Marquis won't be on it's Carfax. But if you were buying it I'd be able to show you all the receipts. However, if the seller has no service receipts for the car, I'd be very concerned. I'd assume that the car has been neglected and not a good buy. HTH. - Jim

Pull the dipstick and see if the oil is clean- in bright sunlight you can see if there are metal pieces in the oil (sparkly little things)- this should be done every time you buy a used car, no matter what- if the oil looks clean, well- it must have been changed at some point- hard to believe that anyone would be that negligent- then, roll the dice, take your chances- as with any used car-

Very good points, Jamn! However, there are people that negligent. My oldest Sister, for example, once got a free oil change on her '92 Ford Escort because her mechanic felt sorry for the car. My Father drove our '73 Ford LTD for the 6 years and 90,000 miles that we had it and never changed the oil in it. We got the car in '77 with 45,000 miles on it. I think I was adopted! Lol. -Jim
