    Pretty much as stated, it is mechanically without any KNOWN faults. The vehicle in question may not be perfect but is in running order, as can be expected for its age and mileage.

    Mechanically sound means the car is in good mechanical condition. "sound" is an adjective meaning "with no defects or damage"

    Its "pufferey" designed to make you buy the car.

    Unless an independent mechanic tells you that after you pay him to inspect it.

    Then, it means that, at that time, the car is mechanically sound.

    It doesn't mean it will be the next day.

    Mechanically, it appears to be safe and sound. The key word here is "appears".
