Ok, all you great and honest guys on CAF… here’s the situation. Our car is old… a 1994 Honda. And it’s beginning to fall apart. (which makes me very sad, because it’s my “baby”!). On the way home from Mass, today… a hose broke underneath and it spewed some kind of water all along the road. And is now sitting in a puddle. May be the radiator, who knows what.
But I have to face reality… and think about the possibility of getting a newer, USED car.
Can you guys give me some hints? What should I be looking for? And more to the point, what I should look OUT for? Sadly, there are many unscrupulous folks out there… who will take unbridled advantage of single or older women. :sad_yes: I’m somewhere in the middle of all that.
How do I know if I’m being ripped off… or not? And what would you suggest about any car I’m considering buying… like mechanic checks, and so forth? What are the most important questions to ask the seller?
Hope I get some great suggestions! 'Cause right now… I’m CLUELESS! :o
(p.s. To the ladies… didn’t mean this thread to sound “sexist”! Most men know the tactics about new car purchasing. But I’m open to suggestions from any ladies who are braver than I… and have purchased a car without assistance ),
Thanks all… and God bless.
