Shopping for used car 1A - Check the oil. Is it kept at the correct level ? Is the oil on the dipstick new clean oil ? Is there a fresh new air filter ? These simple items can tell you alot.

Also, never trust car fax reports. Only accidents reported to DMV shows up on Carfax. I have checked out plenty of used cars with clean Carfax reports but had after factory welds and or mismatched paint. I would trust a qualified mechanic/body specialist over any Carfax.

Another tip: If they are not willing to meet you at the local police station then don't waste your time. Or the bank parking lot during bankers' hours.

My brother is a mechanic and i always ask the person im buying from if they mind me bringing a mechanic with me to check out the car. Not even if they refuse, but if they are at all hesitant about it then you know something is wrong with it

Sweet 83 escort as thumbnail. And to be able to comment on a video since mid Sept it's no longer an option. Must be because things like this...(Colorado state university william grey carbon black pdf 225) the fact of dispersant is sprayed and well weather is a manipulation by nozzle of jet engines mixed in fuel....[GTA graphic traing aid 33-01-001 pdf] great read to get you on a targeted individual list. Then god comes to you and your feelings are you are going to be honest and wake the masses and ruin my life in the process instead of just going along with the story that is taught but easily discredited or more plausible it isnt as told. Ya I use to love cars and would love to be in your shoes....maybe lol. You can show a 1990 Ltd and we watch that's character and knowledge from the years of life. I will forgive but dont forget. Air forced to obey and then the mean dog can be petted after it obeys and dont argue facts and reality

-"Just needs a freon recharge" means you need to spend a grand or more. Tell them to do it first -Title in even a claimed relatives name or as said no letting you scan, walk -Lien titles, usually show up once registered as salveage may affect your insurance coverage -If the seller looks like a slob or his house is a mess they probably didnt take care of the car. Lo miles means nothing if it wasnt maintained look past a wax job.

Test drove a 2007 HHR put 10 miles on it no check engine light and forgot my scan tool at home. Went and got my wife to drive it, because we were replacing her car. Went back after about an hour and she drove it. She drove about 5 miles no problems. Purchased the car. A couple weeks later the abs, traction control lights came on. Then a week after that it said it had a miss. After about 150$ found that the MAF sensor was bad. Wished I lived down their so u could wrench on my cars. Their is only 1 mechanic up here in NWI by me that can be trusted and he is always scheduled weeks out.

The problem is looking at a used car and meet somebody somewhereyou don't get to see how that car starts and sounds like when it's cold and drives from cold to warmed up it may have some transmission trouble

Profit is not a crime ! The price you pay for a car has nothing to do with sale price.

Also I recommend to meet them somewhere public just cause if they can’t drive to the destination there might be something wrong.

No, you want to start the inspection while the car is cold. Once it's warm many problems are hidden.

I wish I had watched this before I got scammed by a seller, he said he was helping his in law selling his 1999 Lexus es300 at 160,450 miles. I paid $2500 for it but when I took a smog check, there are two codes p0325 and p0330 made it failed, I am now in a big headache not knowing what I’m going to do. The seller vanished...

I bought a car off the fb marketplace, twice. Same car, both around 120k miles, 1 was automatic, the next was manual. (2004 g35 coupe) The 1st one we bought for 4k, but had tons of problems. Bad window adjusters, lights on the dash, it had been sitting so it needed new rods. New fluids & the knock sensor needed replacing, it needed brakes and rotors etc. Then a headlight went out, replaced the bulb & couldn't fix it. So I got tired & ended up selling, it was a mess. The only reason we got it was because it was cheap at the time & I really liked the car, & I needed a car. The 2nd car was 3k, but had the same miles & it ran fine. Got it checked by the mechanic & no issues besides a crankshaft and camshaft sensor replacement. Everything works as it should and the car has not given me any problems thus far. It really all depends on your luck with the car, you never really know what it's been through!

Another scam is a title that was replaced with a new as if the old was a lost title, and they try to sell the car with the outdated title. (the scam is they steal the car later and resell it somewhere else, or drive it back to Mexico). This happens in Arizona.

Good luck getting a Craigslist seller to tell you where they live. I know I'd never let somebody come to my house if I was selling something on Craigslist.

I just found a great way to save $100-$150 dollars on getting my car checked out by a mechanic. Step 1: Put the car up for sale Step 2: Allow the buyer take it to a mechanic to get it checked out Step 3: Write down everything the buyer says the mechanic said is wrong with the car Step 4: Inform the buyer the car is no longer for sale

The title only tells part of the story. Ask how long they have owned the car. There a lots of part timers flipping cars from their homes. In my state anyone can buy and sell up to six cars a years with no dealer license. These guys are worse than car lot dealers in that you have no recourse if they scam you (and many will) other than trying to take them to small claims. Anyone who just bought a car a week ago then tries to sell it is likely a flipper and got a great deal at an auction or salvage.
