  2. Bought my last 3 cars. Online all are still running 10,7,and 2 years ago all-were as said guess I’m just lucky

  3. I recently went to a dealership to look at a pickup that looked good online. I've never seen so much rust! I later ran the VIN and learned it spent most of its life in Ohio.

  4. How many times will it take Fiat to realize the crap they are pushing to the US is crap? Obama era, bye bye Felisha.

  5. I got my 88 Chevy celebrity on eBay n had it shipped to me. First yr just needed power steering pressure switch. That was 16 yrs ago still have her

  6. Yep, I tried it and DON'T DO IT! Flew out to pick it up and had to drive it 10 hours home. Worst vehicle buying experience I ever had.

  7. Oh yes a shady business. Be careful when they tell you that you have to wire the money and they live in another state. You will never get your car.

  8. I wanted a Mini a few years ago. I'd driven a friend's Mini and it really was a fun car. Great handling. Awesome milage. Just couldn't do it, though. I can't afford a money pit.

  9. Scotty, the car with leaking valve seals, there's an additive to oil that swells up the seals. Have you tried it? Opinions?

  10. I understand your trepidation about online used car sales. He purchased a semi-classic car online from an actual dealership. The photos and description made the car look like a good deal and it was "inspected". What arrived required a couple of thousand dollars of work to the entire suspension and brakes to pass state inspection. He didn't have much recourse because of out of state business.

  11. Suzuki Samurai…reliable, will outclimb any Jeep. My Samurai is more reliable than Scottys Toyota. It gains in value too. 🔞🎭🐧

  12. I love my sunroof to be honest!
    I have a 04 LexusGS 430 with 74k miles love that car lives in car port…only owner

  13. The trend I think is strange is the big guppy mouth grills – ridiculous looking but somehow they are selling – I guess people just trust that manufacturers know what is trending so like lemmings they follow the crowd.

  14. 4:27 Scotty, electric cars have expensive batteries, motors, and (you forgot) electricity inverters. I read that Toyota Prius AC inverters go bad after a few years and cost $2-$3000 to replace. A friend's Toyota Camry hybrid had the battery go bad 1 month before the battery warranty ended and cost her $0 to replace. The out-of-warranty replacement cost would have been $5000.

  15. 3:20 " they claimed she didn't take care of it, rolling piles of junk" you failed to mention, did she really take care of it? if so she could have (and probably would have) taken them to court over it and won. Since you didn't mention that I am guessing she didn't, and she didn't I am guessing she really didn't take care of it.

    I mention all this because it goes back to my comment on one of your more recent videos where you rant and rave the new jeeps, and in particular the compass, are junk simply because fiat took over, but you never provided any actual proof that made them junk! You always rant rave and how great Toyotas are, yet I bet if you trace a decent amount of where the part were source from for both Toyota and fiat, I bet a lot of it is the same place!

    Come on man I thought you were better than that.

  16. Here's where you're wrong Scotty,
    there are reputable companies that will allow you to drive the car for up to 10 days or 500 miles, take it to a mechanic, etc.. Then decide if you want to keep it.
    I've bought a few cars online and its a heck of a lot better than going to shady dealerships.

  17. Sunroofs are also useless in Arizona when it's over 100°, the sun is pouring through it and frying the occupants.

  18. My parents have sunroofs but don’t use them because they don’t like the sun. Got an XSE Camry without the sunroof and I could care less 🙈

  19. Scotty, can you make a video on everything your fancy scanner can do and show examples, really thinking about buying it for my job

  20. In 2006, I bought a 2004 corolla on ebay for $8,000. Flew there and picked it up in person.
    I used that car with zero problems for the next 12 years. 100 worth buying online.

    My next car was a 2011 CT200h which I bought all online with a Ford dealer in MA. Did all the negotiating by email. I flew there to pick it up and drove it back to Texas.

    I prefer buying online.

  21. Hey. I found some seat covers for your Celica. They match your cat pillows. Do you want me to ship them to Houston? 😸

  22. Hi Scotty, I have a ford mondeo 2012 petrol ecoboost. Engine was misfiring so I changed the spark plugs, every time I open engine oil cap alot of smoke cames out, it's doesn't blow any smoke from exhaust. Spark plugs were also soaked in oil. What would be the reason behind it?. Please help. Thank you.

  23. Suzuki made reliable engine and it also use aisin transmission on most of it cars but yeah their cars is so cheap that the interior is easily falls apart and their design are ugly except the new and old jimny

  24. Most people don't actually buy cars online, I just FIND them online like on Car Gurus and then go look at it. You can just use a search radius for your area. Best way to find cars. There aren't many in newspapers and Craigslist isn't very good for quality cars.

  25. I agree about sunroofs being not very useful. I lve in Hawaii and had a maxima with a sunroof and used it may twice the 5 years I owned it. I even had a NX2000 with a t-top and removed the tops maybe 3 times I owned it (8 years). It was a pain in the a$$ to remove and put back (being very careful not to drop it of course). Its really hot and humid here in Hawaii especially this past summer so not having a sunroof is better. I actually want to put some extra insulation on my cars' ceiling so my a/c doesn't need to work so hard.

  27. Hey Scotty, e10 petrol or plain 91 ron (gasoline) isn't really that expensive in Australia. You're looking at about $1.25 per litre.
    That's probably $3.20 (us) per gallon. Dearer than the USA but not by too much.

  28. I bought a Ford ranger on line. It lasted 12 years. Over 30 pics including the under carriage. Just saying,

  29. Stupid or not, millennials and GenZ refuse to speak to an actual human being. So this is indeed the future. Just see how fast Carvana is expanding.

  30. Toyota sells heaps of cars in Australia. Suzuki Swifts are everywhere. Not sure what either side gets out of a partnership except having cars in each other's licensed lots?

  31. Even when you check them out you miss things , get an agent to see for you. Scotty you can start a company that can make a fortune. You can vet mechanics and have a car inspection team nation wide . Mechanics you can trust to give good information to prospective buyers.

    Too bad there aren't way to get a car checked and graded by trusted sources so a good baseline is attempted.

  32. Yea, buy an electric car, they're fast and cool. Meanwhile, while you're waiting 6-8 hours to recharge your car at a station (if you can find one) all the rest of us normal people will be in and out in 20 mins.

  33. Ain’t no company converting a gasoline vehicle to electric for 5000 Euros! If you want any kind of conversion that will give you good driving range it’s gonna cost a lot more than that. The labor cost alone would not be cheap. Then you need the electric motors and batteries.

  34. Scotty, what should i do I have a manual Honda city 2009 model and every time i hit the gas pedal it jerks or stutters, brought it to Honda center and they gave me a long list of repairs so to speak but i dont believe i have to pay for most of it. I

  36. "Oddly enough Suzuki makes killer motorcycles, they are absolute killers" That can probably be said about all Motorcycle MFR's

  37. What do u do? Have the mechanic go to the lot and look at the car there? What does the mechanic charge for that? Or do u mean a friend that is a mechanic. I have zero friends that r mechanics.

  38. We found our expedition online & met the seller in person & test drove the truck. It was a great deal. It had 126k mi& needed minimal maintenance for at least 50k mi. We did basic maintenance. Then we went from 105° to -30°f & started having issues. We fixed it up & its been running great. 👍

  39. There was this bmw wagon on for sale for around $4000. I was interested until it got sold and 2 months later I see a very familiar car and to my surprise it was the exact same bimmer from a few months ago now being sold by a different owner and the person had blurred the number plate. I read the description and it said recently changed “water pump, air conditions…” etc. I said thank god I didn’t buy that car. I ended up realising that buying a cheap euro car is a money pit unless you love to fed em yourself.

  40. In high school I had a Suzuki Katana, it was a bullet proof bike. Traded it for a Chevy Cavalier, ..a couple weeks later the Chevy broke down lol

  41. Had an 85 mustang years ago that had bad valve seals at 60K. Instead of fixing it since it was a junker I used 4 qts of 20w-50 oil and a quart of motor honey at my oil changes. Sold it with 120K! Still was running great.

  42. What? I'm European but i have never heard about companies swapping your old combustion engine for electric drive!! I don't think it is really working or it could be even legal through our endless byrocracy… I guess it is one of the US myth…

  43. I have a 2013 500 Abarth. Been very reliable. Only thing I've had to replace is one power window regulator. Anyone who has an Abarth, make sure you hang onto it since they wont be available anymore.

  45. The internet is a great resource to find cars, especially if your after something specific, but dont buy a car online. Find it, go see it, test drive it, check it out and then decide if its worth your money.

  46. Some of the upcoming online dealers actually have a reliable money back guarantee. I have to disagree with this, that being said it is a little more expensive than a regular dealer, but it takes away the hassle, so it's a 50/50 for me..

  47. Why put indicators on the inside of headlights.
    ie; next to the grille.
    If I am at an intersection and you are 90 degrees from me I can't see them especially during the day.
    Half of them are shown through a clear lens as well, rather than an orange one.
    Its fashion over function and just plain stupid and flaming dangerous.

  48. Agree on sunroofs. I live in Southern Ontario. Too cold to open in the winter, too hot to open in the summer, to windy to leave open on the highway. Pass.
