Hi all- I'm new here and I'm looking at a 2004 VW Touareg V6 with 97K. I understand the V6 doesn't need a timing belt- it's a chain so hopefully we're all good there. I got a copy of the maintenance history from the CarFax and there were a couple things which threw me off. The car is super clean, but I'm just not familiar with these cars. I'll bold the items which concern me:

Most concerning to me is the final maintenance performed on May 17, and the car is being sold just 15 days later. Also- the maintenance was performed at a different dealership and is not detailed. Should I be worried? Thanks in advance for any advice!
