>see used car ad
>guy with a heavy Eastern European accent picks up
What are your red flags when buying used?
To mean its not so much accent as its more use of proper English and not using slang.
Niggers have a hard time speaking properly so that weeds them out fairly quickly.
So just talk like a human being.
If the price is too good to be true, it's likely that it is too good
>Police auction car, so you need to register it and you probably want to get new plates as well
>First, Second and Third don't work and you may need to bump start it in fifth because it won't shift from fourth to fifth
>no engine or gearbox, otherwise runs fine
I speak very bad English with a very heavy accent, but managed to turn a junkyard Chrysler into my DD that was apparently good enough for some rich snob to steal away from me.
I also have a "Russian" surname.
Does that mean I'll never sell a car?
>ran when parked
>just needs some TLC
>just needs (x) part only 50 bucks on ebay
>then the thief hasn't had it MOT'ed before they try and sell it
>American car in Europe
>listed as having X km
>actually includes a picture of the dashboard where you can clearly see mph is the main unit and km/h the secondary, so the X km are actually X miles
how stupid does he think people are
You're the type of guy who I probably wouldn't want to sell to anyway.
>>test drives like it's already his
>>wants to buy it for an unreasonably low cost due to small issues like "paint scratches"
>>wants to pay monthly
Stay trashy, douchebag
If the chassis near where the engine is mounted looks unsymmetrical it has been in a frontal crash.
If it is nearing 100k you are looking at a timing belt and possibly clutch service that you must factor into the purchase.
If it's imported but not yet registered chances are the owner fucked and it is going to cost a lot of effort/money to get it registered.
You probably cannot do this yourself but if you let an auto-electrician go through it and he tells you the wiring is all messed up and an altogether botched job, it is one of those used imports that had a whole previous life in another country.
>go to pick up car
>arrive at place
>it's a scrap yard
Yeah, you should beware of that great deal you got.
My policy it to only buy used cars from old people whose relatives finally convinced them to get rid of that old car.
>Poor spelling and grammar in ads
>ALL CAPS IN THE FUCKING AD
this is about 80% of my area's craigslist
pisses me off
>not putting mileage
>easy fix that is clearly not an easy fix
>m-muh northern european genetics
>call about car
also lately all the cheap tacomas and other related trucks are being bought up by buyherepayhere lots, no repair work whatsoever being done, and then flipped for upwards of $7,000. and all the little white oil field workers are eating that shit up worse than the return of pumpkin spice lattes is for white girls.
last month I saw a beat up F150 with 400,000 miles for $8000
Middle eastern sound alarm bells. I won't even bother calling Ahmed up.
Any kind of Asian also makes me uncertain but I'll likely check it out because they might have looked after it.
Woman owners under 50 is also a bit iffy but I'll check it out.
I only buy vehicles from middle class, white, christian men.
Haven't had a single issue so far.
I once made the mistake of buying a truck from an Indian guy while I had a cold. As soon as my sinuses cleared up, I realized just how bad the truck smelled. I did a full interior detail and couldn't get rid of it. Ended up selling it because I found a good deal on another vehicle and couldn't handle the smell.
I like when they put their finger in front of the license plate because it lets me easily identify shitskins
>They actually conveniently left out a zero, it's really ~200k
>covering the license plate in the pictures so you can't go check the vehicle history online
>clean title haha
>see ad for Mazda3
>90,000 on the odometer
>but I do still drive the car so mileage might change a bit
>see ad was posted 3 weeks ago
>set up meet time
>go to view car
>car now has 120,000 on odometer
>dude how did you put 30,000km on it in 3 weeks
>what's the big deal the car is in good shape u want it or not man?
>turned around, got in my car, and drove off without saying another word to the Arab cunt
What in the fuck is that front wheel?
>don't drive it hard because I know it's on its last leg and don't want you to find out
>I'm charging too much for my shit box because other spics are also charging too much
Do you know how many fucking cars are for sale? Your shit box is 90% chance over priced as fuck
>no white person does this
they hide the license plate so thieves can't look up the address at the DMV. I do this too. I don't need spics coming to my property in the middle of the night because they are too poor to afford nice things.
This fucking shit. All you do is block part of the bumper you lazy shit.
It's the donut spare, not meant to be used for more than ~60km or so. And certainly not at highway speeds, usually 70kmh max.
I bet that cunt is still DDing that piece of shit with the donut on, just waiting to kill someone when it blows out and he swerves into a van full of kids.
The best is "lady driven". Like that's a selling point.
>oil never changed!
>no routine maintenance performed!
>tire rotation? sure they go around in circles!
>what air filter? i use Febreze vent clips silly!
>car was mostly driven in the city so no high speed miles!
>"All original, new paint"
>Plates hidden, by finger
>"I'll Get Back To You On it" after asking for history report using two different phone #'s
>Any car in "That neighborhood"
>Only one pic, or two of the same w/o interior shots
>Does not have all necessary DMV paperwork
Sums up my experience looking for my first car. I fucking love Craigslist.
>See ad for NA Miata
>In really good condition as far as the picture go, reasonably priced as well
>>Only phone between 5 and 7 at night
>>No emails please, but email still listed
>Decide fuck it, I actually want this car
>Phone guy at half past 5 on a thursday afternoon
>Phone rings out
>Leave voicemail with my name and number
>Leave it a week, no call back, ad still up
>Phone again, roughly the same time
>Rings out again
>Try again immediately afterwards
>Give up, ad still up 2 months later
I generally don't buy from mexicans.
The neighborhood the car is parked in is usually a dead give away of whether or not I stay interested.
Nothing against them really, they just don't take care of things they own and they have a distinctly shit taste in decor
take a perfectly normal suburb neighborhood, fill it with 1st gen mexicans and within 10 years it will look like tijuana.
Ah well theres a reason were seen as a racist country.
We have the worst of the worst in terms of foreign populations, can you say "fush n chups" or "uncle habib bridgeported this bro 22" rims are nothing for this clearly too small to pull of these rims capella"?
I can understand the need for discretion, but if that's an issue then at least take the initiative to post the VIN (unsure if that can be tracked to an address) or just provide a link/picture of the vehicle history report. That would immediately clue me in that this person is a legitimate seller.
Practically speaking the US is a far more racist country than Australia is (at least recently, the whole stolen generation thing was fucked up)
Australians like to talk shit, but it doesn't amount to anything
Shitskin non-white here
I do not trust cars driven by non-whites. I only buy cars from whites because it has more chance being being not bad
Other races are more deceiving and more stupid it's the fact
Now let's say you have 1 million and you need to select an investor. Would you trust your money with a black or a clearly no-clue Asian or stupid spic? Or an at least looking wise white person
If any Spanish appeared in the ad
If rims too flashy or big or unordinary
Some plus points for ads:
All maintenance done in time and owner confident for record
Dealer goer (at least the car is properly fixed and no big issues can be hidden)
Encourage vin/plate check
Allow for detailed check on body
It really comes down to price. A cheap car usually indicates it worth cheaper. An expansive relatively new car usually means the car actually worth much.
kill yourself cuck
Some of the best cars I've bought were from turks, most of them are honest even when they're low class. Worst cancer of autosales are the cockmonger selling 4bangers mustangs and turdgen camaros for 18k because "mmuh american dream" and thinking old diesel 70's mercedes are collectibles classics. Fuck those cancers. Also, specific to France, but every cunt who randomly rants against arabs who seek old cars to send them to africa deserves to get his head bashed in and his precious shitheap made a taxi in Uganda or Marocco.
>Car pictured with big ugly wheels
>I'LL INCLUDE THE STOCK RIMS FOR AN EXTRA $500
>No picture of stock wheels
Brown people in general are the worst liars and most deceiving people
At least here in canada the worst people you could trust is brown people
Indians/pakis/Arabs or other Muslims
Not only they have no shame about lying. Lying is actually encouraged in their culture. And they treat cars horribly. Not to mention the curry smell you will have in the car
>car next to beach cities
>all original, not restored, engine never open, even tires all original since 1970s
>paperwork issues (cheap car, next owner is fucked)
>complete except A/C
>full nfsu2 mods
I'm more realistic just because I'm non-white so I don't have MUH TOLERANCE
Lol my parents have taught me not to trust our own kind since grow up and generally white people are like sheep behind the line and moderate (not a bad thing really)
Therefore I just do not trust other races especially my own. No I'm not cuck. I don't lick white people ass nor do I care about white people. I just pick what's best for me in reality. I have no opinion toward races beside benefits.
You or any hipster Facebook users are lying when you think smiley old white couples are the same level as some random gangster look-alike niggers or Mexicans in the 22" wheels. I don't give any fuck about race really. I just want good car and not a wrecked up shit that's not taken care of.
