This car will cost a fortune to run as it continues to get older. That's why most people wouldn't take it for free, and why Chris paid so little for it. Since he does most or all of his own work he can buy cars like this, but most people should stick with Japanese or even domestics.

On the title it says New Joisey? does anyone know where is that ?
Izio Shaba (17 days ago)
Cant believe ChrisFix commented: "nothings forcing him to sell it. He can walk away if he wants" Its not easy to sell a car. The guy initially asked for $3000 and went down a thousand dollars in asking price. You have to have a little bit of empathy in why the man is asking for $2000. Maybe he's selling the car because of family stuff? Maybe he got a dying grand mother. The rational: "the can walk away if they want" is just shrewd. You cant rationalize everything "im gonna put $1000 in to this car, so if I get it for $1900 i'll save a hundred" The guy was clearly belly-aching. Not cool Chris Fix, that was *not* a win-win deal.

I know this vid is over two years ago, but just test drove an 03 civic hybrid (automatic) and when it starts rolling from a stop it sounds like it’s groaning. The sound only does this in this moment, but not when full driving. Any idea what it might be? Don’t think it’s the brake.
Marcus Fant (20 days ago)
ChrisFix hmm, good to know. I started looking at pricing in case that’s the issue, but thanks for the info. Might not be worth the buy at $2,200. Has only 104,000 miles.
ChrisFix (20 days ago)
Since it’s the hybrid version it’s probably the electric motor

Hey do you guys know how negotiable the price of a used car is at a dealership. I don't wanna go to a shady dealership cus I've read horrible reviews. Thanks
Mark Sim (24 days ago)
Since I drive a high mileage car, this was a great video to diagnose the noises and quirks in my own car. Even if you don’t plan on buying an used car, you should test drive your own car just like this to unveil potential repairs. If not anything, you can use the potential repair issues to justify to your wife why you need a new truck!
Josh Green (24 days ago)
Everyone saying that Chris low balled the owner must not have watched the first video. No way that car was worth $3000. And with $800 in needed repairs (cool rims aren't a necessity) $1,900 was a fair offer.
Priya P (25 days ago)
Congrats on your purchase! Excellent job documenting process from initial contact to final negotiation. Appreciate the insight and tips for the different aspects of the inspection. BTW, well played at the end by walking away.

In Europe it is against the law to use your horn to inform someone in front that they need to move, it's rather impetuous and impolite too. It's for warning of danger. Other than that Cool Video. Thank you.
Jeff Carpenter (1 month ago)
Chris thank you for creating the Buy used car videos. You helped me solve an issue with my brother-in-law's car I am trying to analyze. He has a clicking sound in his front tire that I could not determine the noise. I thought it was a CV Joint because where it goes into the transmission it is oily, but I could not see any leaks in the boots, but I was not thinking of the bearing. Keep up the great videos.
El canal de Zazuradia (1 month ago)
One of the infos you weren't putting much atention into on the test drive was the clutch wear. I've seen around that if the clutch disengages shortly when you start pushing the pedal it means it has a considerable wear and you might end up needing to change it more sooner than later.

How do you get that check list?

So you're basically testing everything the car comes with from the factory, which can take a while. There is always going to be something you miss no matter how thorough you are. Most people selling a car privately know what to do before you drive their car, so we cautious.

What care is this
Gage Wilcoxen (1 month ago)
A lot of times when we by used trucks we don’t low ball them but offer a lot less then there asking if they don’t take it just do the classic walk away An they ussally stop you before you leave an take it

Is 60,000 miles on a BMW m3 convertible 2002 selling at 10k a good price ?

Chris, is there anyway to check if a mileage on a car is correct? Is it possible anyway?
Joshua Elijah Babasa (1 month ago)
Hey Chris, thank you for posting vids like these. Any thoughts on a 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer with 115k on the clock for about 3000? It's my first time buying a car so any kind of advice from someone like you would help.

How? The car needs 1200 in work he explained why his offer was low. It's not like the car was perfect and he offered nothing. The car was worth 2.5k without issues. Did you even pay attention?

You should have given him $2000 to show him some respect, and it's worth more than saving extra $100, you still need to learn more about proper negociation.

Tournicutty (1 month ago)
"Don't low-ball the owner" Gives offer of $1500 (50% off from asking price) . Even I cringed and I wasn't even there. This is why I will never be able to negotiate. Also, he was hoping to get it for $2k but even when he got the price he wanted, he was still going to walk.
Dylan Sinclair (1 month ago)
Thanks man, one of the first videos I have found of yours and its completely helped towards some questions I had about checking cars... I just need to learn how to do this quickly when the guy is standing right there tapping his feet! I'm going to see a car in a couple of days and hoping to part exchange my current car so im already imagining that negotiations are a little bit different 🤔
Garon Bradley (1 month ago)
Make sure while driving you also let go of the steering wheel on a straightaway. If the wheel goes to one side, the car is not aligned.
Neville Longbottom (28 days ago)
Only if the road itself is perfectly even. Roads almost always have a slight tilt or divets - so take a slight tilt to the side with a grain of salt!

How do you value recent vehicle maintenance, say the owner installed new tires or shocks?

one thing that caught my eye is that it has 134k miles and he bought it with 129k miles. Selling after only 5k miles is a warning sign to me.
