Is the vehicle priced right?

Here are the final tick boxes before signing the contract:
- What is the mileage of the vehicle? The higher the mileage, the more expensive the maintenance cost.
- Does the vehicle have an up-to-date service book with all the records of all the services?
- Does the vehicle have an accident history with all the repair work details?
- What are the typical maintenance costs in that vehicle’s model? Furthermore, have you considered buying an extended service and Warranty plan to cover future repairs?
- Did the dealer provide you with a DEKRA Certificate?
