Buying a used car NO mechanic but trade - in takes a look.?

Answer:

A used car evaluation is NOT the same thing as a complete mechanical inspection. I've never seen a used car manager lift a car on the rack and look underneath it, hook it up to a computer diagnostic or take the car for a thorough test drive. All they do is a visual inspection and they call one of their wholesaler and ask them what they'd buy the car for. If you can't afford the $150 it takes to pay a mechanic then you can't afford to be buying a car.
A Dealer will not do what you are suggesting for free. Also the Trade-in value can be a couple of thousand dollars less than the actual value of the car. Your best place is Kelly Blue Book, or Edmunds Auto. As far as CARMAX, that is all hype. You pay almost $40 if you want a Carmax report on your own, but the main problem is that Carmax only has the records for the car that have actually been reported to them. I have had my car since 1990 and if you ran a Carmax on it all it would show would be the State Smog Inspections. If would not show any work that has been done on the Car as repair shops do not report that to Carmax either. Hire a mechanic, to go with you, or take it to a mechanic and pay. A free inspection will be worth exactly what you pay for it. Nothing.
Not sure how that works you need to call your local dealer and ask them. Or you can find a repair shop close to seller and pay a senior mechanic there to look at the car on their lunch break.
Why do so many ask about Christians eating shellfish? We have no food restrictions; that is under law of Moses - which gentiles were never under even before they became Christians. I'm a Christian, and I don't care if you're homosexual or not; that's between you and the Lord. If you think gambling and cursing aren't taboo for Christians, you don't know very many.
A true believer does focus on all things that make them rebel against God and sin. Your eating shellfish statement is no doubt a ploy to the Old Testament which was part of the Levitical ceremonial laws that Christians are no longer under because of Jesus Christ; however, Malachi 3:6 tells us God does not change. Not only did He destroy Sodom Gamorrah for homosexuality and other sins, He said homosexuality is an abomination. If it was an abomination then, it still is. People don't like their sin pointed out, they want things to be politically correct and feel-good. Go see Joel Osteen for that. Read the Bible if you want the truth.
