Default Buying a 2000 SLE Bonne, need your advice


My wife & I put our down payment on a 00' Silver SLE Bonne last week. We're buying it from a Korean couple that is graduating college and moving back overseas.

It'* got about 67,000 miles on it and it'* not in too bad of shape, just one scuffed up corner on the rear bumper where someone hit them while parked. I also think the driver'* side wheel bearing is going out.

All in all, for $5,700 (before tax & tags), I think it'* a good deal! I'll post some more of my own pics as I put them on my PC, but for now here are some ones they sent us.

Is anyone near Lafayette, IN and know of a reputable mechanic to have look over this vehicle? What all should I have done once I take posession of it? My first used car was bought by my parents, and then I bought new after that, so I'm not real familiar with what to do after buying a used car. Should I have a full tune-up done on it? Oil change, tire rotation? Etc.. etc..?
