Purchasing a used vehicle can be an excellent option for someone with a limited budget, looking for a second car, or a first-time buyer. On the other hand, a used vehicle can be prone to mechanical problems and could create enormous financial issues down the road.

Honda once released a “Cautionary Tale” about a car that was considered a total loss and sold to a salvage yard but somehow ended up back on the streets two years later and sold to an unsuspecting buyer.

When the vehicle found its way into a Honda dealership for warranty repairs, Honda ended up buying the vehicle to conduct a forensic analysis with the assistance of VeriFacts and Marco’s Collision Centers. What they discovered will alarm you!

So, if you are considering buying a used vehicle, use caution, get all the details, and have it inspected by an independent mechanic with a good reputation, like Precision Body & Paint.
