Craigslist Car Scams

Craigslist Car Scams

rev up your engines
McKenzie says how do I not get scammed buying cars on Craigslist watch
my video how to buy used cars so you can check them out yourself but the first
thing is say is it a clean title they got to tell you yes or no then you say
it’s the title in your name and if they say no walk away because that’s the
biggest scam is that these used-car Lots pay private guys to sell cars they’re
someone and if the person’s title is not in their name don’t buy it cuz they’re
selling it for somebody else that’s one of the easiest ways whose
selling it and it’s not theirs then you know walk right away and of course before you
ever get it have a mechanic check it out don’t ever buy a car unseen from a
mechanic cuz there’s so many ways people can cheat you look at the title first
and if they say yeah well they have the title or it’s not in their name just
walk don’t listen to any crap on that, Anthony says Scotty what do you think
of the WRX okay with the Subarus are fun to drive they always have been zippy
cars now realize that it’s old technology those four-cylinder boxer engines that’s
what the Volkswagen Beetles used in a ww2 time when it made the first one
it’s old technology and they’re trying to get horsepower out of old technology
and it can be done and they’re okay for driving around but today with modern car
designs for the horsepower they put out for the price they charge for how they
run I don’t think they’re really worth the money
on the other hand if you can get a used one cheap enough that’s in decent shape
they can be fun cars to drive around but there’s no way in Hades that I buy one
of those things brand new it I sticker price you’re just throwing your money
away then try to find one that has been taken care of that you can get used to
and definitely definitely if you get one get a standard transmission don’t even
think about getting with an automatic they’re garbage
Ethan banker says Scotty are Tesla battery’s good in the winter and is the
Tesla Model 3 are they reliable cars they’re relatively reliable electric
motors are so much simpler there’s not that much to them, I got a friend who lives
in Quebec in Canada he went out and he got an electric car and he found that in
the winter it gets really cold there sometimes 40 50 below that you lose up
to 45 percent of your battery mileage that you can go right off the
bat when it gets to that cold that’s the problem with batteries
they’re not made for really cold weather and they’re not made for really hot
weather you know that’s something that kicks out electric cars is
really cold they’re not really made for extremes electric motors are good at
lower speeds and lower power but at either cold temperatures or hot
temperatures and it gets really cold they can’t do anything about that
because if they use their own energy to heat themselves up then they would go
even less, so think about that you live in a
cold climate you might rethink electric cars, edith says what do you
think of the gt350 Mustang well very interesting technology in a gt350 fast
fun cars to drive around they cost a whole bunch of money that I’ve given
away cuz anytime they make something like that the GT series they always up
the ante the price and stuff on them and they’re super high technology there’s no
arguing that they’re not like a simple old v8 which is plain old fuel injection
and no turbos or superchargers they’ve got all the bells and whistles on fun to
drive but you know as time goes on in the age they’re probably gonna have
engineering problems with some of the high-tech turbo and GDI stuff breaking
down as it ages it’s just modern technology the stuff
that really goes as it ages it’s gonna break down faster and cost a lot more
money to fix too, pro-4x official says what do you think of the Toyota Paseo
there were decent cars they were a marketing failure you know they
never were really popular when you start making a cheaper car it’s always a
problem because how cheap are you gonna make it so that it’s still decent but it
doesn’t cost that much and that was always the problem with the cheaper
Toyotas they’re they’re decent cars it’s just that they weren’t that great and
when you get low and sometimes they’re too low and they don’t ride that well
and they’re buckety and so they were kind of a failure sales but they weren’t bad
cars alright Google’s getting in a car action
now they are working on a personal safety app that will notify and
automatically call 911 if you get in a car wreck of course like everything else
these days it’s all based on the old cellphone and it’s going to have various
software inputs like motion sensors on these the noise that hears
in a car here’s people screaming or crash noises gonna be able to call you
to see if you’re okay and if you don’t respond it’s gonna call 911 give your
location now it’s not out yeah it’s somebody leaked some of the information
on it but people are working on these things and not a bad idea really if it
if it works out right I can certainly see if it screws up and starts calling
that there’s problems when there aren’t that the 911 guys are gonna be mad as
Hornets somebody rattling the horn they’re gonna come out screamin if they
keep getting called the stuff that isn’t actually there and knowing how apps
work especially when they’re in a beta formation they often have glitches in
them but if they get it down pat this personal safety I pay could save a lot
of people in a long run, BW Reggie says when you clean up that mess in your
garage there’s just organized chaos like the physicists say the end state of all
matter is entropy I’m just preparing for the end times in my garage guy wrote
this book I read ages ago hero the story was this monster and he had all
this stuff in a cave and he said my whole purpose in life is to one day get all my
stuff and put it in piles and maybe one day give them all a name maybe I’ll try
that, drives my wife nuts but it keeps her out of the garage she never goes in
there anymore, so if you never want to miss another one of my new car repair
videos, remember to ring that Bell

  1. The Mustang GT350 doesn’t come stock with turbochargers I got it mixed up with the ecoboost Mustang, but it still has a very complex engine. Slip of the tongue and this is filmed live

  2. You keep knocking Subaru but all of mine have gone over 280,000 miles. All automatics so I do t know what the hell you are talking about. All wagons. Including a GT wagon. My latest is a 35,000 new ( I buy used -2,3 years d) all Bean Outback wagon loaded including winter package. 150k so far and it’s awesome

  3. I had a 98 paseo 5 speed manual and that car never let me down. I seen the guy I sold it to just a couple years ago and he was still driving it with no major issues with it with over 250000 miles on it..

  4. "High tech turbo and gdi technology will fail on the gt350" sorry Scotty, but you're wrong about 1. There is not a single turbo in that car, it's a 5.2 L flat-plane crank naturally aspirated V8

  5. Teslas will automatically keep the battery pack within a temperature range which is what eats into your range. You can disable it by going into a special long range mode that reduces the HVAC power and stops it from maintaining the battery pack. When it's too hot or cold you just get reduced power and charging. If it's charging slowly from the cold, if you still have some charge left you can try doing some hard accelerations and regen to warm up the motors and battery enough for a fast charge. The fast charging should keep the battery warm too.

  6. Old technology boxer engine lol, ok so what you call modern engines with other cars, you understand old technologies is that engine it proceeded the boxer engine by 70 years hmm ,you need to head back to school

  7. Scotty, in regards to Subaru boxer engines you keep using the phrase "old technology", I don't think you know the definition of technology. It may be an old configuration, but the technology is as up to date as any . Question, how old is the in line four design?

  8. I see an issue arising with the automatic 911 stuff. 911 already became so much more high volume with people carrying around cell phones. Now 911 calls are being made from smart watches. If you make a device that can call 911 on it's own, you're definitely going to have to make sure that 911 is prepared and staffed for that. Volume is already becoming an issue.

  9. Hey scotty, I have a 2001 3.8 mustang with 115,000 miles. Last week it started smelling like coolant when i turned on th a/c or heater. It also blows some smoke when i turn on ac. Do you have any idea of the problem?

  10. Adolf used to ride boxer beetles while revving the rumble in front of hot nazisaz and hotbox vaping. There's a reason 4/20 life was invented on his birthday.

  11. Just got a non taken care of 2016 kia soul fur 3k only . Put 5 hours and 400$ into and my daughter now has an almost new ,amazing 1st car..thx craigslist

  12. What's the best way to have a buyer pay for a used car that you are selling? I know of people that were given fictitious bank checks that bounced after several days.

  13. hey Scotty could u do a list of good used cars to buy under 10,000 dollars…there are many videos out there..what would be ur suggestions?!

  14. Wait wait wait one minute, why don't they just use the same batteries they used on the moon??? -250 to+250 temperature swing per day. There batteries worked just fine

  15. Scotty appears to be a good mechanic, however I'd have trouble paying guy by the hour who has to spend an hour looking for a 7/16 box end wrench.

  16. Great, so when the Google car malfunctions and calls the cops you can have the boys in blue show up and shoot you

  17. What if someone is just sitting in there car in a supermarket parking lot and a wagon hits the car pretty hard. The cops are going to be called??

  18. Scotty, I had a good experience back in March 2019 when I bought a 1990 Plymouth Acclaim off of Craigslist. I paid $800 for it and it had 48000 original miles (yes that's what Carfax said!). I just recently replaced the fuel pressure regulator for the fuel injection, new radiator, new water pump, new timing belt, replaced the transmission fluid and filter (yes, I made it a point to use Mopar ATF +4, Dexron kills Chrysler transmissions!) and did a complete rear brake job. I plan on doing the front brakes next weekend. The car runs great and the interior is in excellent shape (no sagging headliner!) Most of the parts that I replaced were preventive, since I'm not about to trust parts that may be 29 years old. The only thing that wasn't preventative was the fuel preassure regulator for the fuel injection, it was leaking and I don't like the smell of gas and I don't like driving a bomb.

    I think that I did good on this purchase.

  19. Craigslist ruined Cragslist by charging $5 now. It's almost 99% dealerships or a scam now. They wanted to get rid of scammers by charging $5 a month, but only Dealerships and Scammers made a lot of money off Cragslist. It had the complete opposite effect lol.

  20. Have everybody download the Google Personal Safety app, then go drive the bumper cars at the carnival.

  21. Sub ar u, old techknowledgy Scotty, did i learn something? i sending a guy in town a reefer you'll have a new sub scride, haha

  22. Brilliant strategy, keep your garage a hot mess so the old lady won't go in there …..Well I've got that covered,lol!

  23. The reason why electric cars lose so much of there energy in extreme temperatures is because a tone of energy is used to either keep the battery warm or cool.


  25. 04 corolla every 2-3 weeks will have no power for 10-20 sec then it’s fine after that. Any ideas on what it might be

  26. that safety app seems like a gimmick to me. it will only work if your phone is undamaged in a car crash, which is a pretty big assumption.

  27. Somebody told me once that if you live in Florida or California Arizona Colorado any place that's really hot supposably they have to give you a lifetime warranty on the battery of an electric car I don't know if that's true or not🤔🤔🤔🤔

  28. I will never buy a car off craigslist ever again, bought a Chrysler Cirrus off there and that was the biggest mistake..

  29. Subaru old technology, Shirley you can't be serious.
    Porsche have boxer engines and they're one of the best cars money can buy.

  30. I have a 2017 Mustang I bought in June 2017 that will dial 9-1-1 in the event of an airbag deployment.  It was not an option and it does not require a subscription.

  31. Why walk away?? That’s so stupid. I flip cars so i register and pay taxes and reg fees on every car I buy??? Stupid advice

  32. Scotty, you're the first gringo I've heard use the word "standard" when referring to manual transmission vehicles. I thought only Spanish speaking people did that? I always have to remind myself to use the word "manual" when speaking to gringos.

  33. Subaru aren't built heavy enough after they pump them up with turbos. Check out YouTube channel " Subi performance" an amazing engine builder.
