I just sold an old daily beater, guy came at night, paid cash. Lucky for him I'm honest, and he scored a good reliable car.

If buying a used Mercedes - just dont! Go on to the owners forum for ta particular make and ask the guys what to look for in a particular car.
Bradley Bennett (11 дней назад)
I'm pretty sure it's 96 not 99
Marty Smarty (13 дней назад)
All great tips but what I look for is good maintenance records. If an owner can show me that they followed the vehicle maintenance schedule then I know the car was well taken care of. I use a superb car maintenance and management software product www.lonewolf-software.com/automotivewolf.htm on my laptop that tracks the maintenance schedules on all 3 of my vehicles. It also creates a very detailed maintenance log that you can print out and show to any prospective buyers. I've sold several vehicles over the past 10 years very quickly this way.

What about the millage sir, does it really matter (high millage like 150 Km?
Winston Leighton (1 месяц назад)
Peter Timpson,, Most importantly make sure the engine did not have an history of overheating. Many times an overheating engine spewed coolant from the cap or overflow bottle leaving an obvious dry like stain . You may try to ascertain if the cylinder head gasket is warped. If not,,,, more important matters are there to know when buying a used car other than firewall rust.
Peter Timpson (1 месяц назад)
Today I looked at a 2002 Saturn L200 what iwould be the cause of the corrosion on the aluminum surfaces? It looks like hard water stains. Also, I noticed the same corrosion on the trans lines that are attached to the firewall. I hope to hear back from you. Great video.

Unscrew the oil filler cap and check underneath the cap itself for white (milky) gunge. This is a sign of water getting in, possible oil leak or head gasket issue.

1. Don't buy it at night 2. Check tires 3. Check transmission fluid 4. Check engine oil 5. Check brake fluid 6. Check belts, corrosion & rust 7. Check anti freeze 8. Obd2 ”0 diagnostic code” 9. Obd2 ”Readiness test" 10. Listen for any noises 11. Check online reviews 12. Call a parts store

My dad never thinks before he buys a used car. As long as it drives and doesn't make any noise he'll buy it and a few months later he'll have to sell it because he realizes something's wrong with it. He's subborn as hell too and won't listen to me when I try to tell him not to

If you can see the brake pads, when they are the same thickness as the metal plate, they need changing. When the tire tread is meeting Lincolns brow on a penny, they are about 50%.

How about checking all power options, windows, doors, sunroof, seats?? Make sure you check Ac system, even in the winter you should here the clutch engaging the compressor. The frame and rails, the rockers for rust and rot. Big issue with older north east cars. Make sure you check the gaps on the panels. Their is so much to look for. Basically if you don’t know what your doing, go with someone that does

If you go to look at a used car and the current owner will not let you do a compression test due to liabilities. Plus, the owner has new transmission fluid and brand new oil in the engine. What other tricks and tips can you give to gauge whether the car has a safe system? Other than smoke out of the tailpipe and test driving. Thanks
Calvin Collins (3 месяца назад)
N 10SZ get a "block tester". You don't have to take anything apart, all you have to do is take off the radiator cap. Using that will tell you if you have combustion gases getting into the cooling system. If you do, probably a bad head or head gasket.
MuggShotGaming (5 месяцев назад)
If it explodes on the test drive dont buy it.

Jman 2081 (6 месяцев назад)
Good tips. I would add you should look at the motor when it's being started to make sure there isn't a lot of rocking when started, if so motor mounts could be worn out. Also pop the hood and look at the lines of the fenders from front to back and make sure they are straight so you know there wasn't any major accidents. Look at all of your lines and gaps as well as door gaps. Measure the gap between the fender and the back of the front tires to make sure they are the same. Jack the front end of the car up and see if the front tires have any play side to side or up and down. Test all lights to make sure they are working. Always check and see if there are any leaks or excess oil where there shouldn't be.

Yes I stated the culture and race purposely so they can feel some shame and try to make themselves have a better reputation.

Any tips for an BMW 1990 325iX for 2.8 grand lol. Obviously check for rust everywhere and leaks. Also panels and bumbers for paint color. Although i will be replacing all the bumbers and fenders and trim. Supposedly all electronic clusters and speedometer etc work, but I have yet to see it in person. The car doesnt have a cracked dash which is rare for these e30s but you can always replace them for pretty cheap which is what i bet one of the previous owners already did. Anything else i should watch out for other than the obvious? Edit: Btw this will be my first car and I'm planning to do a lot of work on it.
Offi Atter (1 месяц назад)
Hey man, any idea or a well drafted checklost for buying old E30? Im planning to get one in coming weeks. Hopefully, you can share something decent with me so that I dont buy a lemon. Major concern is leaks, rust. Also, how to check if the body is not a splitted body welded to be a car again? Do i have to open any pillar cover to check for this?

bought a 2014 Chevy Cruze lt last week. this week after work the check engine light came on. code is misfire cylinder 1. should I be worried? I took it to a mechanic and he changed the spark plugs and erased the light. he said if it comes on come back.
Jazel Diodonet (1 месяц назад)
If it has a turbo you wanna change spark plugs every 30k miles and if that one spark plug is bad the other 3 are bad as well

working shlub Might wanna tell him to check the radiator too. From 05-early 2010 the frontiers, xterra, and pathfinder has SMOD problems too. They do have a bypass on it or the best thing to do is replace the radiator. Also timing guides like to wear out fast on the early models too. If you hear a whining noise that’s mostly the guides are worn.
