The fact that the car is being sold by this dealer means that it was traded in and then wholesaled off because it was known to have problems that the taker of the trade didn't want to bother with. This turns on all sorts of red lights for me.
That's what I thought after looking at the CarFax. Service records are probably with the original owner, if he has any. There is already 2 degrees of separation from him to the current wholesaler.

To the OP: good luck, but that car doesn't seem like a $6,000 car in this market.
