10.12.20 (MP3): Used Car 101 - Some Things to Think When Shopping A New-To-You-Mobile: Good Cars & Bad Reps, Local VS Shipped, Flipper Tricks & Handy Geeks, Paperwork & Panels, Undercarriage & Unimportant, Things to Check & Things to Ignore
The much-requested followup to our September used-car what-the-Hell episode - it's Used Cars 101. Sadly, the Gearhead Consultancy needed about eight hours to cover all the bases on what to look for when buying something used for yourself, but there was time to hit the high points. Long story Fort, anchor your eyeballs in common sense and don't be a fool (plus some things like what to care about and questions to ask).
Have no fear - specificity IS here. We run down a checkoff list of areas to eyebang, like body, suspension, state-of-wear, overall condition, starting and running, plus traps and tricks set by flippers. Justin case, bring a geek.
