Ed’s Used Car Page
What you’ll find here are some resources if you’re in the market to sell your car or buy a used car. If you would like some tips on buying or financing used cars, please see my page Used Car Buying 101. In this section you will find:
Be sure it’s a car you really want – don’t just fall in love with the price
The Smell Test – smoker? mildew? or maybe too much air freshener???
Car Fax – It worth your investment to check the history for frame damage, flood and major accidents
Polarized Sunglasses – a great way to see if the paint matches everywhere on the car
Get an expert opinion – see my Preferred Vendor page
Check the oil dipstick – is oil too fresh? Any white blobs? Burnt smell?
Check the points where things are bolted on like the hood and door hinges
Check to see if all the original labels from the factory are on the doors jams and other places
The other example of a back wall car is just a very clean, newer, one-owner car. Often I will highlight cars that I myself sold as new cars and later took in trade. These cars were usually serviced here so I know all about them. In this case you will see the car on my page The Back Wall before anyone else on the internet or at the store does.
Thank you for checking out the Used Car section of Ed’s Car Page. Have Fun!
