Default advice on used sierra purchase

Just wanted to hear what some can say about what they would do when purchasing a use '08 sierra 4wd from a smaller type dealership. the truck is in excellent shape. it's from B.C. Canada, so im hoping not much rust from the salt on roads during winter but it was in southern bc. not far from where I live in WA state.

I put a down pmt on it and will pay the rest this week. I didn't really inspect the truck because I had just got out of a eye doctor appt. where my eyes were still dilated. I should have waited but I was wanting to grab this truck before it was too late since then lowered the price to 10,500 it's an extended cab with 141k miles.

Should this dealership provide me any service records they did on this truck if I asked them? I need to ask more questions like how much break pads do I have left on front and rear, etc....I just need to know what should I be asking the sales guy. Thank you much. I'll let ya know how it all turns out

your local dealer that you use, will be able to give you a print out of the service record for the vin number
it doesn't matter if it was done out of state or country
I have had it done on more than one used truck that I have bought

Thanks, i read the car fax and no accidents, nothing but 2 oil changes and it's had 3 owners. When i go to pick it up, I will look at the oil, transmission fluid, feel the wheels for rotor wear. All the things i should have done before i put the 500.00 down.

i'm so excited. I've been waiting since 2012 to get back into a gmc sierra. I've never seen such a clean used truck but that's probably standard for detailing. seating is perfect. no power seats but everything else is. The truck has an aftermarket GPS navigation system with CD slot. I sure hope it works. They showed me the back up screen so so far so good but i didn't press any buttons. i couldn't even see the darn thing very well. Tax is a lot here in WA. but out the door price tax, lic registration 11.400, I have been looking on auto trader and other sites for the year '07 and '08 as these are the 2 models i wanted to look into with what settlement money i was to receive. I couldn't find another extended cab with lower miles but i only checked within 200 miles from me. I am so excited, i went from major league trucks to the poor house and now i'm back to a major league truck again.

Before you take delivery, sit in the truck with the salesman and go over all the OEM features to make sure they work.

Your dealer should have all records of service work/repairs done at GM dealerships.
