Re: Things that annoy: "AC Works, but"

Completely redone frame up!! ESPECIALLY on unibody's. My son recently wanted another car. He was looking for something turbo and awd. Found a pretty nice little WRX Sti not too far away. Seller and his buddy buy them and fix them up to resell. Sounded great, pics of the engine out and all apart for new bearings, valve job, clutch, etc. Interior was good, had new paint that looked new but still needed a cut-n-buff.....seller wanted to wait a couple months for the clear to get good and hard. Overall, looked like a good buy. My son was ready to go get it, I told him to ask specific questions about tires, brakes, steering, etc. Basically is it ready to be put to daily driver duties. Well......brakes are about shot, feels like it has a warped rotor, front struts need replaced, will need tires and an alignment, oh......and the steering rack is worn out and leaks some fluid...!!!!! WHAT PART of completely redone am I not understanding here??? My son ended up with a nice clean local 300c with a HEMI.

No. Low miles are low miles. Yes 200,000 miles on a 40 yr old vehicle means it was only driven 5k per year, but its not LOW MILES.

Re: Things that annoy: "AC Works, but"

People who sell a completely disassembled vehicle but the ad says that "It runs great!".
Same people as above who only post pictures of their disassembled vehicle when it was all together.

Re: Things that annoy: "AC Works, but"

As mentioned before, I see a lot of these for sale that need the rockers and cab corners replaced. The sellers will state they have the new parts to do the repairs and they will go with the truck. So why not weld them in and ask for more money?
