    hey berto, jerseys a bit far for me & even more so for kenny

    one thing i can say is, especially with newer cars being sold used is, most people don't get rid of a new car that soon unless theres a problem.. the majority of really late model cars being sold are hit cars... all that means is be extra cautious when looking at a car that's only a year or 2 old for sale. carfax don't mean anything, I've seen & delt with tons of big hit cars that A, look perfect when done & B, have no carfax history to show this. my fx is a perfect example... it was borderline totalled, but to this day it still shows 100% clean carfax.

    it would be worth hiring one of those auto inspection services if the car is that good of a deal & that hard to find locally... a few hundred for the inspection is worth the piece of mind & sepecificly discuss with the inspector to look for any signs of body or paint work. without seeing the car for yourself I would suggest avioding a car that shows any sign of paintwork at all in something that late model.

    I've cut 2 cars in half once & buit one car from it... it had a 100% clean carfax when done. carfax is the biggest false sense of security there is.... don't mean a damn thing, but most car dealers use this to there advantage saying "oh, the cars never been hit because it has a clean carfax" total BS

    yeah, believe me, car fax is pretty useless. I mean if it does show something then obviously there was something, but if it shows clean it means absolutley nothing...

    even the carfax garrentee is BS:

    The CARFAX Buyback Guarantee protects you from unknowingly buying a used car with DMV-reported incidents (salvage, fire, flood damage, odometer problems or lemon history). This coverage lasts one year and is transferable.




    ^^^total BS




    this is the problem, many things don't get reported thru the proper channels & carfax don't know... it is in an owners & an insurance companies best interest to NOT report.

    recently dmv has been pressuring the insurance companies to follow the proper guidelines, but they still don't...

    Yeah, Car Fax is completely worthless. My CRX was a stolen recovery car used in drug runs and has frame damage and has a completely clean Car Fax, and my X-Wife's old Accord was in a bad accident where she was rear ended by a drunk underage canadian and they had to replace the whole right rear corner of the car. Completely clean Car Fax also. Car Fax is a joke and nothing but a way to piss away money IMO.
