Someone posted a 2001 Nissan Altima for $1,000. It has 213,000 miles and a ticking timing chain.

Does that sound bad to you? It sounds bad to me! Eric the Car Guy has a total of 2.5 hours of video replacing the timing chain in a 2.5L Nissan and a water pump.

That sounds bad to me!

How about this?

It is only rated 19/26!

You're out of here!

That dealership has a 2004 Civic EX and 2006 Camry V6

The last two Camries that I have mentioned had pictures of the dash, but it showed the trip meter, not the odometer. However, they showed the VIN of the v6 at the dealership and it had 300,000 miles!

They are asking $1,700.

It looks beautiful and maybe it runs as well as Mom's, but the fuel economy is comparable to that Altima, although I would vastly prefer an inefficient 2006 Camry to an inefficient 2001 Altima!

They are asking $1,400 for the Civic, which has 216,000 miles, but you guys say that the 7th and 8th generations are less reliable than the 6th.

It is rated 25/34 (I think), so in theory I would save 20% on gas, but that might be $2,000 out the door, and I have logged $3,000 in gas in over 4 years, so there isn't exactly an ROI.

I wouldn't bet money that the Camry with 300,000 miles at a used car lot is more reliable than my Accord with 220,000 miles. It is rated less efficiently, and I don't seem to beat the EPA when I drive the speed limit, time stops, etc.

Moving to Canada is harder than you might think. My wife and I have looked at it a couple times and even as two working professionals we don't score high enough of the point system.

However, Quebec will take us if we loan them $2 million.

2016 Nissan Sentra for $6,900. Shouty would disown me. He especially hates their Jatco automatic transmissions!

Being disowned would be funny, but not worth $7,000!

Ooh! It appears that for some reason Craigslist defaulted to By Dealer!

Nay!

2010 Forester for $2,100.

Isn't that the last year with the bad engine?

It is rated 20/27.

I am waiting to be impressed.

2007 Corolla with almost 150,000 miles for $6,000--at a dealership, so $7,000?

2014 Focus with 156,000 and an autotragic for $2,800 at that dealership.

Here is a 2013 Focus with 123,000 miles for $4,800.

Is it worth paying an extra $2,000 to get a car one year older with 33,000 fewer miles?

The owner of the 2007 Prius never got back to me.

2007 Prius with 300,000 miles and display problem for $1,800

Allegedly it runs and drives. This is the same color as the one a lady I took out had, although allegedly she did not remember me.

I wonder if she doesn't remember our date in March (I took her out in 2014 and again last year).

There aren't many Prii up here, despite her claiming that it is the most common vehicle.

No, that would be a pick-up.

However, the seller had the Celica and a Camry, so I wonder if he buys cars from an auction.

He said "This is common, look it up." People who tell me to find support for their claims instead of providing a source like an adult are invariably unworthy of my time.

Facebook doesn't give me a link option on my phone, but how many Prii near me can there be?

I hardly ever see them!

2006 manual Xbox with bad struts an hour away for $2,150

It doesn't look like it has been treated well:
Quote:
NEEDS STRUTS. No check engine light on. Fun little car. Runs great but clanks due to needing new struts. No stereo but set up for a system. Cold air intake, Power windows, detachable steering wheel, ac and heat work, NEW TIRES, and cheap on gas. Books up to $3800 Priced to sell. Located in St. Johns, FCFS.
Why would you detach a steering wheel?

How much for a standard one, you know, with an airbag?

You install an aftermarket steering wheel when you have been in a crash and don't want to spend the money for a new OEM steering wheel and airbag.

Looking at the primered front fenders it is clear that this car has been in a front end collision.

My question is why does the rear end look like it has been lifted about 2 inches?
