    My tip ? Make 2 identical reciepts for the sale . You both sign , PRINT name and date . He gets one , you get the other .I always put sold " on this day sold as is " on a reciept. Its a used car , no guarantee, whether Im the seller or the buyer theres always a gamble when buying a used car .The best way around it is to not pay too much .

    If it’s cooler out? Even better go look at it before it get to warm up outside. Show up a half hour early so seller hasn’t had chance to warm the car. Having a chance to see how it starts when cooler outside and with Cold engine is beneficial.

    If you can look at where the cars normally parked. Is there pools of oil or Coolant underneath. Red Fluids Transmission = Run!

    For used cars, you pay 20 to 30% of the price of a new car, but THAT is still 30 to 45% TOO MUCH due to markup. Either buy new and take the 30% depreciation, or buy used and pay 30% too much. Your call. And there is nothing wrong with buying a vehicle which has been in a serious wreck, as long as you KNOW it was in a serious wreck and the vehicle is priced appropriately.

    After watching a lot of which car to buy I took Scottys advice and went for a Toyota RAV4 got a few months warranty and told the dealer, yes sorry scotty a dealer, but I wanted a bit of a safety net, that I was getting a mechanic to put it on his car lift to inspect the underneath and it was going onto the scanner as soon as I got it home but with it having a full service history and only 63,000 miles on the clock I thought it was worth the chance, so far fingers crossed it is looking like a good car

    Always meet at a syrup club in case you don’t buy the car. You can still make good use of your time

    I bought a salvaged Jeep commander from a guy on Craigslist 5 years ago. I still own it and it’s been a great vehicle. So, there are definitely exceptions to the rule.

    Not sure about Texas but here in Georgia every salvage/totaled vehicle has to go through the G.B.I.(Georgia bureau of investigation) In order to be retitled, "Salvage Repaired/ or Reconstructed "safe to drive. They actually require Before & After pictures of the repair as well as all receipts for parts purchased. If any used parts are used ,the Vin number must be attached to the used part and will have to be on the invoice . Most of the time it's totaled out if the airbags deploy 🤷🏽‍♂️
