Personally I've never been a fan of the used car lot route. I've always bought my stuff from a private sale. I guess with the car lot you get a guarantee - even if it's 30 days. But with a private sale, you usually get to see the guys house, you know he's been driving the thing, so you know it either has a good history or not, etc.
The guy I bought my Suburban from lived in a house in the suburbs of Boston, beautiful subdivision, with the huge driveway, wife was in real estate, etc. Had a huge file of all maintenance done to the truck, owned it for many years, etc. They had downsized to a BMW SUV. Sometimes you just know they took good care of it. Maybe I'm a cynic, but on a used car lot the guy will tell you whatever he can think of to sell you that truck.

Less old, less noisy, less slow, daily driver Jeep.
