Personally, I would look more at service records then CarFax. I basically look to CF for if it's a salvage title or not and if the milage appears reasonable for the condition of the car/service history.

So I guessed about right, the car has about 200,000 on it. That seems reasonable for the age and what CarFax did know about the car. If service history appears in order, which it seems to, I would have it inspected (possibly at the owner's expense as he's so excited to keep paying for the car) and see what happens from there.

It does make me a little nervous the seller is anxious to sign a 6 month warranty. Is this a private party or a dealer? If a private party, I'd have that warranty paper notarized or some other more official authorization. Why is he so anxious to get rid of the car?
