    So I have been looking to buy a vehicle, I am 17 so I do not very much about cars. I found a 2006 Nissan Altima on Craigslist for $1500, I emailed the seller and got a reply within a day. She said she was selling the car because her son passed and it was his first car so it brings bad memories. She told me she lives in Kansas City so she would pay to have the car shipped go GA at her expense. She said it will be through a Ebay protection program so it will be safe and she said I will have 5 days to inspect the car before she gets any money through ebay and for her to get the money I have to want the car. My mom said this sounds fradulent.... Any ideas before I buy?

    Short story: I entered an open field without permission and crashed into an unmarked well in a large crater that was very hard to see, breaking my arm severely. Last week I was riding my dirt bike across the fields close to home. I had no prior permission, but they were wasteland fields. I went into one field, realised there wasn't an exit, so rode back diagonally across the field towards the entrance. Suddenly, I was flying, then I landed, hard, and was thrown a long way clear. Almost immediately my right arm felt numb and strange, I pulled my glove off and the back of my hand fell back and almost hit my elbow, while the bones in my arm became visible against the skin in a few places. 3 days in hospital, major operation etc etc. Fast forward a few more days and I went back to the field to see what happened. Turns out, there was an old well, sunken into a sort of crater, about 5 feet deep, and maybe 12-15 feet in diameter. I had taken off and flown over it, but not cleared it, and landed in the crater on the other side. There was long grass around it and in it. It You could hardly see the crater from anywhere but 10/20ft around it. It was very well hidden and unmarked. Do I have a case? Imo, I shouldn't have been there without permission, but the field was open, wasteland, and the well/hole was unmarked, a small child/pet/elderly person could wander in there and get seriously injured. What do you think?

  • Why can't these idiots make a tire that doesn't slip in the rain?

    I hate it when I'm at a stop and I accelerate and there is water on the street from stupid rain and the stupid car slides all over the place. That should be illegal. Why don't we have a tire that actually sticks to the road? It's like DUH!

Now my issue comes down to know one willing to teach me...I've asked all the driving schools CDls want you to pay them $1000s of dollars. I've even asked salvage yards and garages if they would be willing to teach me the basics. Now my question comes down to THIS. The Impreza's that haven't been in snow and salt/rust are all down south. I'm in New york. I'm willing to fly down south purchase the car and drive it back up and learn along the way. Is this a dumb idea?

  • Can I sell a car without keys?

    First off, I know little to nothing about cars, so this may be a dumb question. I've had this car sitting in my driveway for a while now and I'm looking to get rid of it.

    First off, I know little to nothing about cars, so this may be a dumb question. I've had this car sitting in my driveway for a while now and I'm looking to get rid of it. It's a fairly nice car (2002 Jaguar X-Type to be exact) but it only had one set of keys, and they were stolen in a robbery. The fact that there's no key and that it hasn't been started up in months are really the only things wrong with it. I'm trying to get rid of this car, and at this point my asking price is ridiculously low because I just want it gone. A lot of people have told me I'll be better off getting keys made and getting the car back in good condition before trying to sell it, but here's the thing: I basically have no money right now to do these things, and as I've said before, I really just want to get rid of this car. So my question would be is it acceptable (or even possible) to sell a car with no keys as-is? The buyer would essentially have to come tow the car out of my drive to a dealership immediately to get the thing working again, which seems like something nobody would want to do. I've been thinking that the best choice might be to just pawn it off on one of those "we buy junk cars" companies, but it seems like such a waste to get rid of this thing for a "junk car" price. Then again, as I've said, my asking price is very low and I really want to get rid of this thing, so maybe that's the best way. Can anybody tell me the best option for someone who is broke and trying to sell a nice car that has no keys and probably some engine troubles from not being started up in so long?

    I would like to know if I should continue and buy the car. The seller told me that he can just issue the bill of sale and it would be fine. But I don't think that's gonna be FINE! Well, I bought it on ebay and ebay should reimburse the money even though the seller cheated on me..right? I've done the autocheck and the title part was clean. But my concern is the lien part. There was lien reported on 2005. Then there are different titles after that. Well, the seller tells me that he does not have the title in his hands right now because DMV took it... Does it make sense? Why would DMV take the title? Here's what he said on the e-mail "** One snag! I no longer have the title in hand! I didn't know this was going to happen but the DMV took it from me when I had the car registered. Doesn't change much other than the fact that instead of a title you will receive a bill of sale. With that you can transfer ownership and receive a new title with your name on it. I had to do this with a previous car so I don't want you to get worried. This wont change anything. I just wanted to let you know." Do I have a right to ask him that I would want to wait till he gets the title and send it to me before I pay him first? How should I handle the situation here? I need help folks!
