I'm looking to buy a used car. I'm considering a Sentra from an individual who's supposedly moving back to his country. I'd like to believe his story, but one suspicious thing is that the car is still under the dealer's name where he bought the car 4 months ago. He claimed he didn't change the ownership because he found out he was leaving the US just after he purchased the car. This, I suppose, is believable. Anyway, I took the car to a mechanic who I trust. The mechanic had advised me against buying 2 cars in the past. This time, he said that the Sentra's engine seems very good. There's either a clutch or transmission problem which is minor, but the engine seems pretty reliable. The paranoid, suspicious part of me questions whether or not a car could be fixed up by someone so that it appears to be in good condition, when in fact it's a disaster waiting to happen. Also, the fact that the guy just recently bought it from the dealer.... I've heard that it's better to buy a used car from a private party rather than from a dealer when you're talking cheap cars. (Asking price for the Sentra is $3750.) So, essentially, it would be like buying the car from a dealer. I have just enough cash for this car, and I need a car very urgently. I can't afford to buy a lemon though. Thanks for reading.
