Buying couple years old car

I am thinking about buying couple years old car from
dealership. How do i ensure that car has not been in accidents and that engine doesnt have anything wrong with it.

Any experiences to share?

Request full service record from dealer
Your own mechanic to do pre-purchase inspection (even thiugh it is still has some remaining factory warranty left. Your mechanic will test drive the car to check out engine and tranny operation. Test out brakes , etc

If you are buying for someone (ie. daughter or son). Ask them if they want it first. it's not a gift if someone didn't want it even if you think you got a great deal.
