I think it's time to replace my 1993 Pathfinder.
I'm looking at a 2008 Sante Fe SE/Limited with a little over 17K
mileage. The asking price $18K.
Almost seems to good to be true? CarFax says it was purchased late Feb
2008 and sold late Dec 2009. CarFax reported repairs are replacement of
the Air Filter and Wipers two months after it was sold in 2009. CarFax
reports no other problems.
It seems odd that the oil hasn't been changed. I took a look at oil
filters for this auto and it looks like they don't have a outside case?
It looks like an air filter? Where is the oil filter located on this auto?
It appears the warranty is transferable so it has 31 months or 42K miles
remaining on the 60 month, 60K basic warranty.
I haven't found a bad review of this auto. Every one that owns one seems
to really like it, comparing it in quality to a Toyota.
I've only taken it for a short test drive but I plan to keep it for a
few hours or even overnight and to drive it on the highway, have a look
under it, etc. and have a mechanic give it a quick once-over. Is there
anything I should look for to indicate a hidden problem?
