Buying a car
My wife's car is totaled.
It hasn't been wrecked, it has problems. It's a former Michigan car, then my parents bought it on Washington state, then gave it to my sister, who then sold it to us for $50. Long story short, it won't pass California smog, I've dumped about a grand into it already and it needs about 3 and more just to be a decent 19 year old car with 190,000 miles on the clock.
Um... No. No time to do the work, and I can buy a better car for that kind of money.
Except that I can't. Have you seen the private used car lately? It's like a punch bowl with turds floating in it.
One guy tried to sell me a salvage title Impala, and started talking REALLY fast when I plugged my scan tool into the OBDii port, another blew up my phone when I wasn't interested in his 260,000 mile Civic hybrid (it'll need a hybrid battery very soon @$1500-$2500)... Another guy just didn't show up to show us his car. He needed to go to Costco. He since removed his listing because too many scammers were calling him.
What a $#! %-show.
