I'd suggest using a professional inspection company. I've used lemonsquad.com twice with very good results. They charge about $150 (check their website for the most current pricing). They'll spend a few hours with the car and go over it with a fine toothed comb. You'll get a detailed report and lots of pictures. When they're done, you'll know exactly what you're buying.
