Default How To Inspect a Used Car Suggestion?

We often get so many people asking what we think of the car that they're looking at. Or how to look at it and what to look out for...

Why not develop a "How To" guide to checking out a used car (can be general for all cars then start a new list that is Bonneville-specfic). Most people usually like to check it out themselves becuase some cases, the cars are 1-3-6-8 or whatever hours away and they can't just drive it home to their trustworthy mechanic or the mechanic has not become so trustworthy anymore.

Then this article could be added to TECHINFO for people to print off and go perform the inspection themselves

Thoughts?

Good idea.

How about you start it? PM what you come up with to a Moderator or Gearhead and we'll make sure it gets reviewed by the GHs and possibly added to TechInfo.

Ok, I'll work on one (to the best of my ability) that is very in-depth and possibly include some pictures.

I finished the rough outline. Whom should I email it to? It'* 6 pages long and I came up with every possible thing I could think of. I'm sure there'* spots to be added/revised.

Let me know.
