Never Buy a New Car, Unless

Never Buy a New Car, Unless


rev up your engine’s, Joan says scotty
you always say don’t buy a new car, but
I’m planning on buying a Tacoma and keep it
forever, should I still go for a new one
or should I trying to find a good use
Tacoma instead, I’m a fan of buying used
cars, I bought nothing but used cars my
whole life, I’m cheap and I know if a
new one costs 30 and I can get a good
used one for five or six when it’s 8 or
10 years old, that’s the way I’m going,
I’ve done that my whole life, but my son
last year bought a brand new Tacoma truck,
he wanted me to find him I could use one
I started looking around and he said, ah dad
forget it
I’m gonna drive the thing for 20-30 year whatever
I’m just going to buy a new one, one the prices
of
the used Tacomas are high cuz there’s
such well-built trucks and their so
popular, and two if you’re gonna buy a
brand new truck, he didn’t buy the v6 one
that was expensive, he bought the basic
four cylinder one, he figured if I’m
keeping it for 30 years it’s not costing me
that
much each year for paying for it so,
sometimes it’s not a bad idea if you
pick a vehicle that’s gonna last a long
time like a Toyota Tacoma, and you know
I’m gonna keep that thing for ever,
absolutely nothing wrong with doing it
that way, and contrary if you really want
to get a car that’s not known as being
all that well,
definitely lease it instead of buying it
if you want to get a BMW or a Jaguar,
don’t buy one lease it, cuz then you’re only
gonna lose that amount of money and no
more, rav 2002 says hello
my wife and I are looking to buy a
bigger vehicle and I was thinking an 07
or 08 Yukon Denali all-wheel
drive, we live in Michigan that’s why I
want four wheel drive or all-wheel drive,
if you have suggestions please help me
yeah well I got lots of suggestions and
the first one is, don’t buy that yukon
denali, i got customers bought those
things and there were lemons from the
get-go, some of them had transmission
problems with less than 40,000 miles on
them, their terrible vehicles as time goes
on, the problem is you want something big
and
if you buy something big, especially if
it’s american
you can’t buy a 07 or 08 you
can’t buy an 11-12 year old vehicle, they
just don’t hold up over time, now if you
see any of the Toyotas or any of the
Honda’s that are big enough for you, you
can go back in those days, because those
things can go 200,300,400,000 miles
they can last a long time, but not in a
Yukon, your problem is
if you want something that holds you
know a whole bunch of people, you got to
decide how many people you want to hold cuz
let’s say you got a regular family, hey
you can always fit them in a Toyota
Highlander, that’s a great SUV, I got
customers with them that have 400-500,000
miles
but if you’re
looking for something that holds like
seven-eight people, then you’re kind of
in a no-man’s land, because the only
people that really make that stuff are
the Americans and if you’re gonna do that
at
least go forward because they’re a lot
better made than the GM stuff is, big jake
big jake says hi Scotty it’s cold
out any concerns about today’s
gas blends freezing in a modern car if the
tank is low, I’ve never heard of anyone
having frozen gas, even our dads all told
about it, yeah I guess used to freeze
in the old days, you get water in
the gas tank and it freezes and freeze
up on it, but it’s not something that you
really have to worry about these days
for one main reason, next time you buy
gas take a look at the gas pump and it
probably says, may contain 10% ethanol, that
means it generally does contain 10%
ethanol, ethanol is alcohol
it’s pretty much dried gas, that’s the
stuff that we used to put in, so it’s
already added in and you really don’t
have to worry about having water in
because that alcohol will absorb any of
the water that’s already in the system,
and you won’t have to worry about it for
that reason, big boy says Scotty what you
thoughts on
Kia being the fifth most reliable car
company and is it even true, here’s the
thing about reading that stuff about
reliable cars, you can’t believe what
half the people in the world say because
they have ulterior motives, they might be
being paid by Kia, they might be an
advertising company that’s just flat-out
gonna say whatever the company that’s
paying them to say, or their gonna go
do a survey of people that work at Kia
who knows what, they never give you
the information, and what does it mean by
reliable, you talking about 10-15 years, are
they talking about 10 days of ownership
like
initial quality, which means absolutely
nothing that’s a bunch of nonsense,
I saw one the other day and they even
were rating cars that I know are
absolute trash, Chrysler’s as being well
built cars, I mean a lot of it is just
total nonsense, you need to find a guy
like me, a mechanic who’s been working
on it for 51 years and works on all
types of cars, so he’ll tell you the truth
because like, say you go to a guy and the
only
cars that he works on are Jaguars, of course
he’s gonna say Jaguars are good cars,
because that’s the only car he works on
that’s how he makes a living, I work on all
the cars, there’s some I won’t even work
on cuz they’re so bad and they’re so
expensive, that I won’t even work on them
but I work on generally all the
different cars out there, I’ll tell you the
truth I’ve got no vested interest in it,
be USA, scotty and community I’m dying
to know if I got scammed with a
Craigslist car flipper, I bought an 08
Scion tC with 83 thousand miles
for forty six hundred dollars cash, the seller
wasn’t the same person on the title, which
has $1,800 as the purchase price, well
obviously you got ripped off, if the
previous guy only paid $1,800 for the
car and you paid 4600, something is
fishing here, what you’d want to do is, well
that’s probably too late now cuz the
guy’s long gone, he’s got your cash so
you’ll probably never see the guy again,
but for your own peace of mind, do one of
those Carfax type checks and see it’s
got the real mileage, when you get the
CARFAX most states allow them to show
the state inspection each year, and see
each year what the mileage was to see if
it’s a real mileage, see if the thing was
totaled in a wreck cuz if the previous one
was
1800 and a scion is a Toyota and they
go for top dollar, and if it was ten
years old and it only sold for $1,800
with that mileage, it would be fishy I think
that the title is probably a
reconditioned or a flood car, something
like that, so do the CARFAX just for
your own thing, and next time you know
look at the title first before you buy
it if it says that don’t even buy the
thing,
so if you never want to miss another one
of my new car repair videos, remember to
ring that Bell!
