      Lmao, sure because the dealership is the only one that scams people. in the history of Mechanics they have never scammed a guest nor has buying a car off of a private sale. Nope never.... Scottie come on man, you have to stop using one circumstance as a means to bash something. because lets face it, the bad apple theory applies to everything.

            You take chances on ANY preowned car you buy. Even some brand new vehicles have issues within the first few hundred miles. They're all made by man and machine and none of those are perfect. What matters is that the vehicle still has an active warranty.

                                  How should I arrange to have my mechanic inspect a used car before buying it? Should a dealer let me drive it off the lot to do this? Or, should a salesman drive with me? Is it good enough to have my mechanic come to the lot and inspect it without a lift? Should the dealer provide the lift and time to do this inspection?

                                                  No way I would ever do "ride share," much less invest in a new car for it. Why would you want to work for Uber/Lyft and pay their business expenses on top of it?? Remember, you're an independent contractor and have no employee benefits and you pay 100% into Social Security.

                                                      I am more afraid to buy/sell from a private party. I have seen too many police reports that start that way. No matter who you buy from due your research.

                                                          Having worked in a service dept. of a Honda Dealer I totally disagree. Every used car was checked out and only those that were superior would get the 'Certified' label and would come with a Honda warranty. I bought a 2001 cr-v that was Honda certified in '04 and it now 15 yrs later has 129k without any major problems.

                                                            The problem with buying from the dealer is the car has been sitting out in the weather (sometimes for long periods of time) and not taking care of.

It seems like most of them are selling people on additives that are snake oil and I had one smear grease inside my airbox by the filter and they said I needed to buy X Y and Z to fix it. I just had my airbox open and know they did it. And they did the same thing to every other person waiting for their cars - I listened to it. So frustrating.

                                                                                              I bought one from a dealership...
                                                                                              But my family use to own a Saturn dealership and therefore we still have connections and know the guy who owns the dealerships next to where we had ours. I paid $5,000 for a 56,000 miles Toyota Matrix with one owner and consistent records.
                                                                                              No one is buying manuals or small cars anymore so it’s been sitting there. And the price was listed at $9,000 so the only time you wanna buy at a dealer is if you got connections. Because they also financed me and what they did is they lowered the actual retail price even further to make the interest plus cost of car to come out to $5,000.
                                                                                              Saturn was a good company: they gave us several cars free. Then in 2004 for some reason when GM took a stronger hold on them they stopped doing that, and they made working for them crappy.
