Buying a Used (Repoed) Car advice...

Hey all, Parents are getting me a car for my recent graduation and was wondering if you all could provide some insight on if theres any reason I should avoid cars that have been repoed. This particular car I'm looking at is from a pretty tiny dealership and its a repo. Got a carfax history report and it looked ok, but not sure if theres anything else I should be wary of with Repoed cars.

    Why would it be any different than any other used car?

    I'd say there's even less to worry about with a repo'd car than with a used car, as it's been taken from the person involuntarily rather than you having to worry about the risk that they're selling it because its a piece of junk.

    Just do all the normal used-car checks and you should be sweet.

    If you have a regular mechanic, they usually let you take the car over to be checked out. This only helps if your regular mechanic doesn't suck.
