Buying a used car can turn out to be a nightmare if you don't know what you're doing.
Buying a used car may at first appear to be a fairly simple exercise. You find the car you’re looking for, take it for a test drive, and then make a deal with the seller if everything checks out. Or does it? In this debut episode of Drive channel’s Drive Clean series, our host takes us through the mechanical inspection process as he seeks to buy a 964 Porsche 911. Considering the car is well over a decade and a half old, it could be plagued with a seemingly infinite number of problems.
That’s why the second hand 911 is sent to a Porsche specialist for a full inspection. For anyone looking to buy a vintage car or any other used ride, this video is an excellent guide on how to avoid a lemon. The inspection may cost you a few bucks, but it could easily save you a bundle in the long-term.
