Buying myself a Mitsubishi Lancer Saturday (hopefully).

    Very kind lady I work with heard I was car shopping and happened to have a vehicle that she was thinking of selling.
    I asked her how much and she said $1500 (negotiable) and I asked what year and she couldn't remember and said she didn't know much about cars and had been letting her daughter make payments to her on it but she quit paying her and ended up buying herself a minivan because she got knocked up...
    I told her to send me some pictures and she did and I was going to see if the guy we got the GTP for today wanted it but getting this Lancer is an hours drive each way and it needs the bumper slapped back on.
    Anyways, the guy didn't want it so I was going to tell her never mind when I saw her at work today but then she told me a little more about it and apparently its a 2010 and its got a TURBO CHARGER :)
    At work she showed me a video of it running so I could hear it through a shitty phone and after all the work spent buying that GTP today and it costing $3k I just looked at her and said Ill go get out cash and pick it up Saturday whenever you want.
    Really I don't give a shit fuck if it needs a doohickey or a thingumabob or if it has a dead body in the trunk and 4 flat tires.
    I'm pretty sure worst case scenario I can turn right around and sell it for some profit.
    Honestly though if it doesn't need a whole lot of work and makes the drive back okay I will probably sell my old Ford Escape especially seeing as how I still have to pay my rent next month...
    I'm pretty fucking sure there's no way in hell Ill ever not make a profit on my Escape seeing as how I only paid $50 for it.
    It's done me well but it has a slight oil leak, transmission leak, brake fluid leak, coolant leak and I wouldn't be surprised if it leaks windshield washer fluid too.
    I still might drive it until the wheels fall off or it explodes but if I am going to sell it this is the time when I can get way more than it's actually worth.
    We will see how it goes Saturday. I'm just hoping this lady still is okay selling it come then. I'm kicking myself for not meeting with her today and buying it but I was working on getting that car for someone else and not focused at all on anything else.
    Looking forward to the possibility of driving more than 200 miles on a TANK of gas.

    So you can't afford rent, or a decent computer, or food half the time but you can afford a $20,000 car private party.

    This. I just noticed he said he's getting it for $1500. Is this not a major red flag? Getting a car that bluebooks at $20,000+ for less than $2k?

    $20k? Did you miss the part where it's more than 10 years old?

    Look at what 2010 Lancers are selling for in the Dayton Ohio area. They're going for right around $22,000.


    Then look at the pictures he posted and realize why it was less than 10% bluebook value.

    Yes, that's my point. $1,500 is less than 10% bluebook value

    No. I see $7k, which is still way too much for a 10+ year old vehicle.

    I have the base model (DE) which is fine given the 217k miles it has.
    Less parts = less problems.
    Base model gets the best gas mileage too.

    Given your other thread I'd say that's not completely true, now, is it?

    Maybe the few I saw were special cases. I truthfully didn't spend a lot of time on it. Either way he got it for way less than it's supposedly worth.
