Format: Paperback
This book tells you the kinds of things to look for that you wouldn't know unless you knew a bit about cars. Not only does it tell you more commonly known stuff like where to look for rust, but then gets into more detailed handy information like how to tell if there is body filler underneath paint, what you can learn by looking at the exhaust pipe(i.e. black and gummy could be burning oil or covered with white stuff shows that the fuel mixture is too lean) and has photographs of all of these. This is well worth the money if you are looking at a car because you can find out a lot just by inspecting the car. You could also save hundreds or thousands(or just avoid getting ripped off) by being able to point out problems that may not be considered in the price asked. You will also appear(and be) more knowledgeable so the seller may not try to take you as a sucker. This levels the playing field a bit so you have a better chance of finding a car that is appropriate for you.

HASH(0x9cd7696c) out of 5 stars Excellent required reading for used car shopping. 21 Nov. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Well written, quick read, lots of important illustrations. This book is for used car buyers looking to not get burned and put the right amount of effort into inspecting potential purchases. Great for both the mechanically inclined or inept. Specifics and illustrated examples and photos of problems to look for. Covers quick filtering by phone, quick walk arounds, thurough test drives, careful inspections of potentially good vehicles, and a final inspection by a mechanic. If everyone read this book used car buying would lose its stigma and shadey used car sellers would go out of business.

HASH(0x9c91b360) out of 5 stars Fabulous Book if your are in the Mkt for a Used Car!!! 22 Oct. 1998
By jromero@flash.net - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am not a 'car buff' and never buy new cars but I have good friends that know cars who help me through the torture of buying a 'used car.' This book is the next best thing to having a mechanic you trust as your friend: very practical and readable - the 20$ will probably save you a lot of GRIEF!!! It was an eye opener and a $$$ Saver. If you're about to buy a used car, do yourself a favor and read this book.... and good luck out in The Jungle.......:)
