Clearly we are not looking at the car so all we can offer is general advice on what you should do when you are looking at a car.

First, in general this car is a fair deal at this cost so if it is in good condition, I would not hesitate if it is something you like.

The things you need to do in order to make sure the car is in good running order are starting with checking the oil level and other fluids. If any are low then that is a question of why, that needs to be answered.

If the fluids are all okay and it drives well then the last thing is to ask for the vehicle to be inspected by an independent mechanic that you chose. Clearly if you know them then that would be best. If not then most shops will change a small fee and inspect it completely for you and tell you everything it needs.

Lastly you should service all the components that require it but more than likely this business already did that. They normally always change the oil but if they have not done the other services like the transmission fluid and coolant then you should ask they do it before you take delivery.

Here are guides that will help with this:
