So I've decided to buy a used 2006-2008 Mazda 6 (probably base model). I know very little about cars but I am looking to learn. What should I look for when I test drive used cars? I've been reading car fax reports online but they all seem to come back perfectly clean.

edit: sorry just saw the newbie section. It'd be great if a moderator can move this thread over.

i guess just look for obvious things, 06-08 should be fairly like new.. I bought mine in 2008 and its a 2004, for a 4 year old car it was almost like new.. Only defects where i little half inch tear on the passenger seat and minor paint foes.. All electrical and mechanical components where in great working shape and condition.. I looked at the valve cover for oil leaks, belts, hoses, power steering, transmission shifts, suspension and under carriege for leaks.. You should be fine, my 6 hasnt had anything go out only maintance issues like motor mounts, brake pads, plugs, air filter and now my drive shaft is needing lube.. Please post when you pick up your vehicle..
