You might find a 200k mile car that has just had some major work done on it that may ease your mind.
Can't get that from dealerships. I absolutely ask for the records but most people don't keep them. Hell, I generally don't keep them either but I drive my car till it drops and then do a trade in. I don't want to hassle with trying to sell it on my own.
