You don't mention why you think it isn't a belt as they say. You could perhaps show up on their lot with a can of Belt Ease and say "Show me"..
Be a 'grinder'. Make them put so much time in with you that they will do anything to close the deal. BUT you MUST be willing to walk away from the deal. Multiple test drives. repeat questions already answered. Get the VIN from them on the phone 2-3 times - claim you lost it. Bring a friend to drive it. If possible, call the previous owner and ask them if there's any reason you shouldn't buy the car. It's not theirs anymore, they're usually honest. Try EVERY accessory. Make note of tire,battery and other 'consumables' that you will nedd to spend money on. PLAN on spending 200-300 bucks on it (hopefully less) after you buy it. Fluid changes, diagnostics, brakes, tires(?), etc.
