A used car sales manager presents a number of tips in this video to help potential buyers spot both glaring mechanical problems and thinly disguised ones. As this program notes, used-car bargains will probably always be hard to come by since so many people only sell their cars when they've grown tired of making costly and repetitive repairs. Rolled back odometers showing low mileage are often the least of a buyer's worries as compared to the many makeshift repairs made to critical engine and transmission problems just prior to a sale. Before ever even thinking about actually buying a used car, find out how to test-drive it to check out how it accelerates, handles on different surfaces, and responds to braking and steering efforts. Viewers may want to write down some of the added tips on how they can try to obtain a fair purchase price.
