It is tough to get a full service record. The owner I bought mine from kept receipts, luckily, but most don't do that. Even then, he may have gone long on a few, it's pretty much impossible to tell.
If your previous owner was regularly going 10,000 miles between oil changes, I'd be pretty worried, but from what you said, it seems like that wasn't the case. Not that I'm changing my mind, haha I'm still pretty picky about buying a car, but I might be overly so. If the car looks as though it's been treated well, the OA looks good (which it does), there are no big mechanical problems, and it's a good deal, then HAMMER DOWN's advice may be the way to go. Basically none of this helps your decision
, I know, but it'll end up coming down to you. If you feel good about it and you maintain it well, I doubt you'd end up blowing an engine as was suggested earlier.
