It’s my first time buying a used car from a private seller. What all do I need to do to make a smart buy? I know KBB value for the car and the asking price falls in that range. It has less than 8000 miles on it. Should i just have a mechanic come and inspect it or is it better to take it to dealership?


I am about to make a move to California and currently own a 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. I still have a little over a year to pay on it but need to save as much money as possible right now. I am looking to trade it in for a used car that is reliable, somewhat roomy, and with good gas mileage. I have looked into both Honda and Toyota but am considering all options. I want the price to be $12,000 or less. I **** to part ways with the Sport Trac, but my budget tells me otherwise. I am not looking for a family car since this will be for me only. Any suggestions?


I am a high school student with a steady paying job and would like to purchase my first car. I absolutely love tuning and customizing cars in my head and on paper. I have approximately $6k to spend on the car and i need it to function well until i can start working on it. What would be my best options for an easy to purchase and tune first car?


I had a chevy cavalier rebuilt salvage car. I got involved in a car accident and the car was totaled. The insurance company gave me a check and left me the car. The car has been sitting crashed for like 4 months now. I want to fix it but do I need to do any paperwork? I live in the state of Texas. Can I just fix it and drive it like that?


I need a serious answer .
You are in the house and the car is in the garage. You start up the car and close the garage door shut, the garage does have the little small spot for air. Can you die or suffer intoxication (or how that’s call) from the CO2 that the car release while you are in the house ???
I don’t think so but my mom kept arguing with me and open the garage door ~_~. Unless you are deathtrap or something. I don’t want to but it is winter and it’s so cold to leave it open >< .


In the market for a new car, wondering your opinions of the most comfortable cars in terms of size but also comfort. I always liked my grandparents cars, always owned buicks, lincolns, caddies, etc with the couch like seats. What is a late model car that most closely resembles that? Also, do they still make bench seats in cars? I think inmpala did up until a year or two ago but any others?

I am a 19 year old and I am a bit picky on cars because car insurance is high for me. I just want someone that has some experenice with those cars. Suggestion for other cars are fine too, only sport cars or coupes.


I am working on an application and need to understand how car rental companies move their cars from one location to another when there are too many cars left by customers at one location. One way is to give dirt cheap one way rental offers to customers originating some specific location. However, I am trying to understand do they use auto transport companies to do this for them? If yes how much business auto transporters get one average from such scenarios?

Also, do car rental companies have some sort of contracts with auto transporters saying they will move rental cars always or on demand basis?

Thanks for your time!
