Default Re: Is a used car good choice?

Pretty sure when people import cars, there's no way to get appraisals done, and you just end up with what you got.

That's why you see people go over and find those cars and check themselves, as these guys are simply exporting... They don't care what condition it is in other than what it grades like, and what it's got under the hood.

I got offered a R32 GTR (in 99-03), fresh off the boat (Landed here) for 1500USD equivalent, simply because it had a drifting handbrake setup that wasn't legal here.

If I had bought that and got it back on the road, it'd now be worth 20-30k USD.

They're probably the easiest plugs to change....If you pull the motor first

2.0 are fairly small engines, but I guess it depends on where you live. I bought the truck I'm driving now used. 75,000 miles on it used. I purchased it for 29k, but it all matters on where you buy it from. Make sure it's trusted and they have proof of how well the car has been taken car of. For instance in the United States we have CarFax that provides all that with the Vin Number. (vehicle identification number)

All of this, won't apply to imports that aren't already in the country.

Used car is always the best choice. There is no need to buy a brand new car from the dealership. As soon as you drive out of the dealership the cars value decreases probably by %10-%20
