First time buyer here.
How viable is getting a low rate/high mileage shitbox for a first car? (+150k miles) Any good/bad experiences with yours?
All I know is, it should be good as long as it runs normal and the maintenance is ok.
Who said he was financing?
Its fine OP, just make sure you go over the car, sometimes shit could be wrong with it for it sitting for sale for a while (rusted brakes, corroded/sundamaged lines, sundamage etc.)
And i like you long post guy. But yeah he probably just fucked up, i somehow knew he wasnt talking about financing. Loke i said OP should be fine depending how well the car was taken care of
Regular wear, and make sure to test drive it , and get it to operating temp and to highway speeds to see how it handles. Check engine bay for sounds and shit, check under the car for leaks etc. Pretty simple shit. Avoid sketchy ass cars
Fuck that noise, get something stupid. Lifted samurai or a AMC eagle.
