    Just imagine how terrible I felt that the information I needed to vet my first car was all free while the "trusted mechanic" I tagged along to inspect the car with me, is fraterning with the seller to make some bucks off me,... yikes

    I wish I should have watched this video before I bought a Nissan Murano. Fortunately I returned the car with full refund 3 days after I bought it. It wasted a lot of my time...

    Hi Scotty you mentioned about cruise control on a used car. If it doesn’t work does that mean there’s more underlying problems with the car?

    At 11:26 I think Scotty meant ("RUN" don't Walk away from that car). He accidentally said the complete opposite LOL :D

    I have been told that a scanner will show false problems on older cars due to slight corrosion on the sensor's electrical connections. Is this yrue?

    How is the scan tool FIXD? Is that a good one? It's small and would fit in my purse. I need to get a good used car and a scan would be a good start when shopping. I just don't want to be obvious about it so thought FIXD might be the thing.
