I had carchex do a buyer's inspection on a 2001 Toyota Camry.  Here's a list of things the inspector missed:
(1)  Noise made by engine at certain RPM - Engine probably needs replacement/rebuilding, approx $3000.
(2)  Surface cracks and wear on radiator - $300-400
(3)  Left rear tire worn on outer edge.
(4)  Noise made passenger's side strut mount when going over speed bumps.

My recommendation would be to google "<make> mechanic <city>", and find a mechanic close to the vehicle you're considering purchasing, and have that dealer do the buyer's check.  My experience with carchex was about as bad as it could be - WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO REBUILD THE ENGINE!
