Will someone please look for something in the Phoenix area?

Preferably on the southeast side. I do not know what is wrong with my car, but I need to get back to Show Low!

Please explain.

I am sitting at Sonic in Apache Junction, the last tow between the Phoenician wasteland and the desert wasteland, and the first car on Facebook is a silver manual Insight for $1,395.

If only mechanics were available to look at it!

Mom told me to not buy a car on a holiday. I could not have a mechanic inspect it.

I walked around it and then drove far and fast--for unrelated reasons.

If I lived in or near Florida, I would jump to go look at this 2012 Chevy Cruze ECO with the 6-speed manual transmission for under $900:

I too have been noticing a few cheap-ish Cruze Ecos. But nothing near that price. What's wrong with it??
