Always insist on taking a car to a mechanic to be
looked at before you buy.

Anybody that says "no" is hiding something.

I'm always happy to look at a car for my customer
for free and let him know what he's buying before
he lays out the cash.

My dumb ass didn't realize lemon laws don't apply to used cars. I'm not even sure if I have any leverage on these guys. They fucking had to know about these issues.

Lemon laws normally only apply to new cars and you
have to have 3 attempts by the dealer to fix the fault
with no success and it has to affect the resale value before
that even applies. Most people don't know that.


As far as how much they have to disclose on a sale, that differs
from state to state. In PA you have to disclose flood damage or
known faults from a prior wreck. Other than that, buyer beware.

Don't take this personally, but how could both shafts need replacing and it didn't have any symptoms?

One of these fuckers is a liar.

Fuck you. I have a new, more gooder used car now. 97 Toyota Camry LE...Excellent condition. Should last me a while.

So this is what power steering and knowing how fast you are going is like.​

Was it a dealer? Just bother the shit out of them. Maybe they'll agree to pay part. If not post bad reviews of them everywhere.

Did you atleast test drive it? Look under the Hood? Maybe kick a tire?
Test drove it, checked the engine, searched for leaks, looked in the exhaust to see if there was oil or extra build up, checked the fluids to see if the oil looked funny...pretty much everything you can do without a garage.

I'm telling you, you drive this car and you'd never know there was issues. They cleaned the fucking engine to a glistening shine I could see my face in. The rotor and front pads are shot...the brakes don't squeak one iota.

Seriously, I went to the shop (BTW, it's a Midas. I've been going to this place for years and they have done me more than a few solids along the way) expecting that I was just going through the motions, that I'd drive out of there after an oil change, maybe an estimate on my door lock.

It didn't need an oil change. Not surprising, figuring there is a nasty valve cover gasket leak.

I wouldnt trust what a chain mechanic shop tells me about any fucking thing. They are all assholes, liars and cheats. Even if that stuff really is broken a real mechanic will charge half what they will
I had a guy from an oil change shop trying to sell me a 150,000 mile service on a truck with 15,000 miles because he couldnt read the odometer. Told me that my truck really needed all this stuff AND it was due by mileage... cock smokers

Better yet, stand out in front of the dealer's business with signs until he gives in. It should only take "a while" to get your money back.
